Cooinda Downs is a family run business and has been proudly operating for over 20 years Australia wide.
We carry products that are formulated to specifically target the needs of the individual species in preference to a wide spectrum formula. Cooinda covers a wide range of animals, including: kangaroos, wombats, echidnas, possums, koalas, flying foxes, bats, alpacas, pigs, reptiles, small carnivores and most birds. We cater especially to wildlife carers with supplying Wombaroo milk replacements and other supplements.
We try to provide as much information as possible about each product to enable you to make an informed choice regarding each purchase. If in any doubt, however, we highly recommend that you seek professional veterinary advice.
We fully appreciate the cost of properly caring for animals and do all we can to negotiate the lowest supply price from manufacturers and minimise our own overheads to be able to supply products at extremely affordable prices.
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have further questions, if we don't know the answer we will endeavour to find out for you. We would also love to hear from you if you'd like to suggest a new product or want to relate a success story using one of the products you bought.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you located?
We pack and send orders from Wollongong NSW. We do not live near the premises.
How can I pay?
Cooinda Downs uses Westpac's Payway to process transactions safely and securely and as the website platform Wix does not currently support the Payway system we ask that at check-out you follow the link provided and pay your total order amount using your credit card details. It's important to return to the check out page and continue to the next page to properly place your order. We regret Cooinda transactions aren't more straightforward and hope Wix updates their payment options soon.
All payments must be made in Australian funds.
All credit cards will be charged in Australian funds.
What currency are your prices in?
All prices shown on www.cooinda.com. are in Australian Dollars and all payments must be made in Australian dollars.
What are the Freight Charges for Australian deliveries?
All orders for Australian customers are dispatched using Australia Post, eparcel.
Freight charges are determined by product weight including box.
Our website platform Wix currently calculates only one set of freight charges for each Australian state. It would be our preference for our shipping policy to reflect the difference in country and city prices just as Australia Post does. But as Wix currently does not allow us to specifically tailor freight charges for regions in a state, we have tried our best to charge as fairly as possible.
Wix allows only 10 weight ranges per state for calculating freight charges, which are 0-1kg, 1-3kg, 3-5kg, 5-7kg, 7-10kg, 10-14kg, 14-17kg, 17-20kg, 20-22kg, 22kg and up.
This is not our preference and we hope Wix updates their system soon. If the weight far exceeds 22kg we will wish for the freight charge to ultimately reflect a fair price and will contact you to ask for an additional payment before we ship your order; if this is unsatisfactory you will be free to cancel your order and receive your money back.
