Bush Orders - APY Lands
While Mai Wiru would prefer all grocery purchases are made from our stores, we recognise that we will never be able to compete on pricing with major National Supermarket Chains. However with our supply change to Adelaide, we can now compete on range, and can stock any grocery product line providing someone will buy it. Hence if you are after a specific product please discuss with your local Mai Wiru Store Managers. Provided you are prepared to purchase the item on delivery we can source any product line, but a store mark-up would apply to cover the sourcing, handling, transport and administration costs.
How do I place a Bush Order?
If you do wish to purchase groceries via a Bush Order, please read the following information carefully. Instructions are important to follow to ensure the goods are ordered and packed correctly for transport, and delivered on time to the Mai Wiru Toll Depot in Wingfield for the weekly truck service.
For bush orders, Banana Blue is our preferred supplier, as their orders are packed in boxes, and perishable goods in foam eskies with ice (unlike Coles & Woolworths who send in loose shopping bags or crates).

For individual accounts click here for application form.
You will need to register as an online shopper. Visit www.bananablue.com.au and register to PASADENA Foodland. They don’t have a ‘Bush Order’ service but all their normal orders are packed in boxes and perishable goods in foam eskies with ice.
Banana Blue charge from $9.95 for delivery to the Toll Depot (this delivery charge does not cover freight charges up to the APY Lands, which is what Mai Wiru Supply Operations charge for. See Mai Wiru Bush Order Freight Charges below for costs for freight up to the APY Lands).
Cut off for grocery orders with Banana Blue is Sunday midnight, so the orders may be packed Monday and delivered to the Toll depot at Wingfield on Tuesday morning.
Make sure your delivery address includes the following:
Name; Service Provider; APY Community
Mai Wiru Freight c/o Toll Transport
6 Johansson Road, Wingfield SA 5013
When you make your first order with Banana Blue, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 08 8340 8498 to ensure we are aware of the bush order’s arrival and can ensure it is allocated to the truck load.
What will it cost me?
What you pay to Banana Blue for your order, including their delivery charge to the Wingfield Toll depot, is independent of Mai Wiru. Mai Wiru charge separately for the cost of freighting your order from the depot to the APY Lands. An invoice will be emailed to the receiver the week after the freight travels, and payment can be made via EFT or credit card. Charges for standard bush orders are below.
Below are freight charges for standard bush order cartons from Wingfield to any APY Community. For information on freight pricing on larger items click here.
$27.25 for first carton up to 10kg + $0.82 per kg (or approx. $8.20 for subsequent cartons) + GST.
Bush order cartons 0 – 10kg are all charged at 10kg. See examples below:
Where do I collect my order from?
Your order will be delivered to the local community store in each APY Lands community, and held there for collection when convenient by receivers. This will include the holding of refrigerated goods in the store chillers or freezers to ensure cold chain integrity.
When does the truck get into my community?
The Mai Wiru truck’s approximate transport schedule can be found below. But please keep in mind that factors such as poor weather and road conditions can delay the truck’s arrival time.
