Buy from online. Will save a a TON, even after the shipping costs.

**********.com
hookah-shisha.com
hookahcompany.com

Are just a few that would be good. Not absolutely sure that H-S or HC will ship oversees, but I'm sure John can help you out.

Actually, thinking about it, you might be better buying from a UK site, since shipping will probably be a little cheaper.

The issue here is the sky high tobacco taxes in Australia. You need to pay huge amounts of money on tobacco shipped into the country and that goes for personal and business alike.

If you order if internationally, the company will label the package as tobacco so you'll still have to pay the taxes when the package arrives to customs in addition to paying the shipping.

sometimes you can have the package labeled as a gift, and customs won't check it. but that's still sketchy. their taxes are so high that it should be illegal.

unfortunately living in a country that has high import taxes on tobacco products really hoses you. Nothin you can really do about it unless you get a vendor willing to try and relabel the product so customs doesnt look at it, but thats shady and could get some very reputable people in a lot of trouble.
