A spokeswoman told Yahoo News Australia that McDelivery is currently available across NSW via the MyMacca's app at "participating restaurants".

The McDonald's spokeswoman outlined the delivery costs for the new service.
Delivery costs are in line with existing partner pricing
Fees on orders of $12 or more will be at $3.99 plus a 5% customer service fee (applied to total)
Orders under $12 will be charged a $2 minimum order fee.
“Customers can check their MyMacca’s app to see if McDelivery is available at a restaurant near them,” she said.

"About time, Asia has had this for frigging ages. Just roll it out," one person commented on Facebook.
However others weren't as impressed.
"Who cares? Platforms like UberEats and Menulog etc. have been delivering it for years," one person said. "Will this be cheaper or will food arrive hot with correct order? I doubt it.."
"Even 'freshly' made the burgers are crap. Can’t imagine what they are like after 20 minutes in a bag. Yuck," said another.
