Australian Curriculum Supplies is a business name used by Five Senses Education Pty Limited ( Five Senses Education is an educational retailer, distributor and publisher which has been operating for more than 40 years in north-west Sydney.

We have created this website to showcase those educational resources which have been specifically created for, or are compliant with the Australian Curriculum requirements.

Items on the Australian Curriculum Supplies website are in our core range if they are marked “In Stock” and we endeavour to keep them in stock at our warehouse at all times. 

If an item is marked  “Available for Order”, this means the product is not currently in stock but we will place an order for it from our supplier and supply it to you as soon as possible.  The time suppliers take to deliver products to us varies but is generally within 3 to 10 business days.

If you order both products which are “In Stock” and products which are “Available for Order”, we will dispatch the items immediately available to you first – and then dispatch the rest of the order when it is available without further delivery charge.

If you would rather not wait for backordered items, please notify us as soon as possible and we will provide a refund for that item to your credit card or PayPal account, or if you prefer, we can supply you another item of equal value in its place.
