Default Shisha in aus

Can anyone recommend an online vendor for shisha in Australia?

I'm not keen on risking customs taking my shisha if they inspect my order from the USA

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this

That sounds like an awful waste of "shisha" and gives "juicy" a new and unpleasant connotation.

Yeah but if I buy from an Aussie online store I wont be on the wrong side of customs. If I could legally have it shipped in then I would do that but I dont know how to go about that and im going to look into it but it seems like alot of hassle. Ive read some very negative reviews from 2 onlines stores (Australian) on the forum and to be honest they just look shonky so I thought best to ask about.

I directly emailed instead of using the form on the website. I was getting replies within 5 mintues till I asked for an estimate on shipping (some shipping costs on some stores is getting kinda price gouging range. I mean yes its heavy and im shipping it 1/2 way around the world) with what I would like to order the email trail went cold. I figure he got busy so touch wood i get a reply tomorrow.

unfortunately you need to find a physical store to just send you stuff if you arent in a major city. tobacoo tax alone means you are paying $500+ just in taxes on a kilo. so when I buy 250gm for $75 that means its def got no tax paid on it by the vendor.
where are you based?

Central Coast NSW. But I also have family in Newcastle and Adelaide. I appreciate the advice and any leads.

The prices on the Aussie online stores is tolerable but if there is a better way im all for it.

Hey MossyK how do you light your coals?

Im looking for a portable electric hotplate and all i can find are those ones with the solid plate plate not a coil heating element. Read alot of negative reviews for trying to light coals on the solid plate ones so im just asking what you use. Im trying in vein to find a coil element type but I might be going for the camping stove and some stainless mesh at this point. If only America used 240v AC can buy heaps of them for cheap from the US. /sigh.

Hi M8Harry
you can buy shisha from an online company in Melbourne, www.cheapcigarettes.net.au, $65.00/250g must buy 4 packets, $260.00/kilo. Electric coil charcoal lighter about $40.00 or a Blazn burner from World of Shisha in Brisbane. Can also get electric coal lighter from MYA Sydney at 38 Walz St Rockdale Sydney. The guy in Rockdale has a physical shop which is full of a huge range of hookahs, spare parts, shisha(herbal and tobacco). Hope this info is not too late and you find it helpful, ayeebe

Yeah, but still have to pay the price for tobacco. Shisha is included as a tobacco product and the government collects taxes, excise and import duties. And it is illegal to grow your tobacco, although I have seen many wild tobacco groves around.

yes, but if you import flavoured molasses only(!) i believe the molasses will not be taxed like tobacco. mix it with your taxed tobacco and youre gonna pay taxes only on roughly an quarter of the wheight of the shisha tobacco

That's what Al Fakher has started to do in the UK. It's called Red MX and is 500g of flavoured, dry tobacco with a 500ml universal molasses mix so the tax is halved. Still expensive as fuck though
