Just wondering if anyone has sent some of their luggage home from canada to australia before? I have a medium sized snowboard bag packed full with gear and want to send it home to Melbourne as cheaply as possible from Vancouver. Has anyone done this before.
any help would be much appreciated.

When my sister and her boyfriend moved back home to Montreal from Auckland, they shipped everything by boat. It took a long time (over 2 months), but it was the cheapest way to move everything. Since your shipment is rather small, I don't know if it would be cost efficient, but check to see. If you don't need your equipment for quite a while, it may well be worth it.

it takes about 4-8 weeks to send stuff by land. 4-7 buisness days by air. i sent a present to brisbane by land that was about 12lbs and it costs 17$, yours would obviously cost more. check
