Would be a good idea man!
also I am sure out of all of us here we could find someone who parallel imports like maybe the cafes and restaurants that buy bulk lots of smoke

Hey matais3 good to know man but with the import tax the local tobacconist usually charge $80 $100 for 250g and they have the odasity to charge $50 - $60 for the out of date AF's etc !!! Im originally from sydney so i got my sis to check out all the places i used to go in auburn and when she told me the prices I was like WTF!

Gone are the days when i used to get AF 250g for like $9 a tub!

yo, im from sydney's eastern suburbs.

Only thing i can find is generic crap local tobaccanists and cafe's. Only decent smoke for me is up at sweets on queens and titanic which is ages away. I want to get some starbuzz tobacco and coconara's/******* QL's but shipping is so damn expensive and I have no idea if there is a cost from customs, anyone know of local retailers or anyone that does bulk importing and get me a couple of cases?

I just got done $320 by customs for 800 to 900 grams of shisha
so becareful while ordering. Some pointers to consider try ordering when auspost is busy ie christmas and also always pay extra and get the priority express shipping 5 - 6 days one. It is more expensive but my Jan order came thru with no problems but it was 60 $70 aust just for shipping

yo castro,

It's in auburn, on the corner of Queen's st and something else i don't remember. It's like behind this half open arcade thing, hard to miss. They make great shisha's as good as titanic and they dont attract that same try hard crowd.

If you're in the east a decent place also is almustafa's in newtown, its on gelebe point road, the owner's son recently renovated upstairs into a shisha and sweets only area and he bought like literally 100 km's.

Thats the one oppposite trinity college ey ?
Auburn used to be my old stomping ground, but Ive always found the Nargile you do at home is always better than the nargile you have at the arab cafe's.
How much are they charging now with the tobacco tax etc it was llke $16 - $20 befo for a nargile and was hard to see what brand of shisha they used etc

The one at newtown sounds nice with the km's!
Also sweet hearts sweets or something in merrylands used to get packed with nargile smokers it was near the hoyts there, where they were renovation stockland arcade.
