I noticed a news article on the ABC regarding Home Delivery of Milk (twice a week).

It seems this is for Southside. Does anybody know whether a milk home delivery service is available in Belconnen?

Years ago, when I worked, I used to get milk delivered but then Summer came and the milk had been sitting on the doorstep, in the heat, for some time and was “warm”, so I gave up. Now that I am retired I would like to have that service, again, if available.

Aussie Farmers Direct provides a most substantial home delivery service, including milk, right across Canberra. You can phone them to check your suburb is covered on 1300 645 562 and visit their website http://www.aussiefarmers.com.au to see the excellent range of goods. I used them regularly for three years when I lived in Melba and my local shops required a long hilly climb and I was travelling. I do not use them now only because I moved and am walking distance to my local shops. I never had any problems whatsoever with the quality of their goods and they even provided a zip up bag which I used to put out with a couple of ice bricks, and they always left things in the shade during summer.

I miss having a milko. The last place I had one was Charnwood, though that was 15 years ago. It was great being able tto eun out the front and grab eggs or cheese off the truck.
Coles and woolies delivery isn’t the same, especially since they charge for delivery for orders under a certain amount.

coles and woolies shop online could bring you milk.

Canberra Milk reliably deliver a litre of our local milk to my doorstep twice a week for $9.80. Have been getting milk delivered for years, dating from when I had three growing children living at home, and it saved me a lot of hassles.
I live in the sunny South (Chisholm), so I suggest ringing to see if they have someone doing a run in your area – 62952873 or go to the contact page from their website
