Sadly Amazon USA wont ship to Australia anymore - a protest to the AU Gov demanding they collect GST..
We are forced to use Amazon Australia.

The issue is - as an example, a camp chair we like is $40 on US - or $289 on AU.. and everything on AU is the same :(

Good grief Bruce, that's terrible, I use Amazon a lot because it's cheaper and they deliver sometimes the same day.

..... or all the Roo's who are kicking their heels waiting for the remake of Skippy but there will be a restriction on the size of parcel that would fit in their pouches . Certainly it would be a struggle with the one in Pearl's post however, they could reduce the package size to make it fit and it would certainly stop the utter waste of trees to make the outsize boxes they seem to use.

When you said flat pack style, I envisioned a sheep a pair of shears and unintelligible instructions.

Like making a Shepherd's Pie, ..................Take 1 shepherd, add..............................etc etc
