Default Aus products

Has anyone found Aus products in their local supermarket or market etc? I have found Tim Tams, MIlo and SPC fruit in my local Sainsburys but was wondering if there were any other shops that could be recommended for Aus fair.

Also has anyone used any of the Au/nz shops online for bits n pieces? Are there any shops in central London that can be recommended?

I regularly buy the Australian olive oil from tescos, I also found some nice australian honey and there is also biscuits I have seen from OZ, not much else though.

All the supermarkets have a very nice range of Aussie wines - you can even get Banrock Station in big boxes!!!

Have you found vegemite yet?

My son used to frequent the Australia Shop in Covent Garden when he got homesick for something

just a thought - why not take pleasure out of getting things that are in abundance in the UK whilst you are there. Products of UK & rest of Europe, like the wide range of cheeses, french/italian wine etc you just don't get the range in Oz, or has a much higher price tag

I do already, but there are certain things that I really find a treat.

Try visiting Lakelands, they have Australian items - not many admittedly, but occasionally you can get something a little different than the supermarket.

I think they have Buderim Ginger and ginger ale at the moment. They always have the Darryl Lee Licorice and occasionally different herbs and spices.
