I wouldn't know what the rates to the UK are as I haven't sent a parcel for years.
As I understand it, by international agreement, the sending post office determines the rate and keeps all the money, the receiving end post office gets nothing for delivering it but I guess they all hope it evens out fairly.
I notice that for letters Australia Post has overseas one rate (for the weight) no matter the destination so it costs as much to send a letter to NZ as it does to the UK.
No aerograms any more either.
