Default Buying a book in AUS and shipping to the UK

Hello All

I've been looking for a book which is unfortunately out of publication. There is one store in Australia that has it available to order, I need to purchase online. The only problem is that this store does not post anywhere else, only in Australia!

Does anyone have ANY ideas on how I can get this book shipped to the UK? The site contact said they can only post to AUS and no where else even at extra cost!

There are other on-line used bookshops - is that the only place on the planet that has a copy?

What is the book (name, author) you are looking for?

You talk nicely to someone in Aus and send them the money to post it onwards.

I usually use these sites to search:
https://booko.com.au/
https://www.abebooks.com/

To calculate postage, https://auspost.com.au/parcels-mail/...ivery-times/#/.
