Where to Buy the Oculus Quest 2 in Australia?

Once upon a time, the Oculus Quest headsets weren’t available for purchase in Australia.

Luckily, we have a handful of Australian stores to buy from now, whether you want to pick it up in store or have it delivered to you.

Where to Buy Quest 2 in Australia

Here are 4 places where you can buy the Oculus Quest 2 in Australia and get the best deals:

1. Official Meta Store (Fast Shipping)

The advantages of ordering a Quest 2 from the Official Meta Store is that they have the fastest shipping times and shipping is 100% free. When I ordered my Quest 1, I got it in 2 days. When I ordered my Quest 2, I got it in 5 days (delayed during COVID period).

Also, when ordering from the Meta Quest Store, you’ll often get the best deals if there are any.

2. Amazon AU

An alternative for those who want to order online is through Amazon AU. Most times, they have the same deals as the official Meta Store, but sometimes their deals are even better.

Make sure to check both options to see which is the better deal!

If you have Amazon Prime, shipping will also be free.

3. Kogan

Kogan is one of Australia’s biggest online retailers. There’s a good chance you’ve used them before.

Kogan is an online business only, meaning it’s delivery only (no pickup). The good news is that delivery is completely free.

If you have a Kogan account, they sometimes give you free credits, which you can use to purchase a Quest 2. This might be after certain purchases only, or if you haven’t purchased anything in a while – I’m not too sure how they decide when to give credits.

4. Dick Smith (Pick Up)

Dick Smith is one of the most iconic retail stores in Australia, recently owned by Kogan.

Dick Smith is the best place to get an Oculus Quest 2 in stores in Australia. It’s one of the few places where you can get it via pickup, but just make sure you order it online first and select the “pick-up” option. The Quest 2 is in high demand and not all Dick Smith stores will have it in stock.

For those who are confused on which size they should get, here’s my recommendation:

  1. Are you planning on recording your gameplay, or spending more than $500 on games? If yes, then get the 256 GB version.
  2. Otherwise, get the 128 GB version. This will suit 90% of people.

Common Question: Is the Quest 2 available for pickup at stores like JB Hifi or Harvey Norman?

Unfortunately no, those stores don’t currently offer the Quest 2 headset. The best way to get it pick-up is from Dick Smith.

Best Prices for the Oculus Quest 2 in Australia

Here are the current cheapest prices and best deals for the Quest 2 in Australia:

The Elite Strap makes the headset much more comfortable to wear and since it’s free, this is a great deal.

I’m always on the lookout for special deals or discounts for the Oculus Quest 2, and will update this page when they come out. But do note that they only happen a few times per year.

Special deals usually occur around: Around Christmas/New Years and Black Friday & Cyber Monday.

How long does it take to ship? Shipping time was fast for me – I got it in 4 days from the official Oculus store. Times may vary due to COVID.

Is the Quest 2 Available in Australian Stores?

Yes! We finally have the Quest 2 in Australian Stores!

Currently there aren’t many places that sell it, but the best place to get it from is Dick Smith. If you’re planning on picking it up from a Dick Smith Store, make sure to give them a call to see if it’s available.

Keep in mind Quest 2’s are very low in stock and most times it’s better to just order online from Oculus or Dick Smith.

Common Question: Is the Quest 2 available in JB Hi-fi?
Currently no, they only have PSVRs. However, I can foresee them adding Quest 2’s to their shelves soon.

Which Version Should I Get?

A frequently asked question is: which version should I get? My recommendation is the 128 GB version. If it’s out of stock, you can either wait, or get the 256 GB version instead.

I’ve written a guide with the file sizes of games & movies included if you’re interested.

Basically: Movies and recording gameplay takes up a lot of space – so you might want the 256 GB version instead if you plan on having movies or recordings on your Quest 2. If you play ALOT of games, you  might find it handy to pick up the bigger one as well.

What About Elite Strap and Accessories?

Elite Strap is a great improvement to comfort, but has durability issues. There are cheaper straps on the market that are better.

If you were thinking of getting one, instead I recommend other comfort mods.

Having 1-2 comfort mods will make your VR experience more enjoyable.

Tl;dr: The Quest 2 is available in Dick Smith. The other way to get your Quest is by ordering it online.

Enjoy your Quest!
