      Hi there,

      Don't worry there is a shop in sydney called treats from home which sells english brand foods and cleaning products such as ariel, persil, lenor and fairy liquid etc. Its more expensive but is worth it as i can't live without my pg tips tea bags. There is also a shop based in melbourne but you can also shop online www.treatsfromhome.com.au . Have fun shopping, hope this is helpful.

      Nope, my son was on Nutramigen last year when we visited, I had to bring 9 tins of the flippin stuff with us. I am sure they will do an equivalent but I would stock up in your suitcase and declare at customs until you find a suitable alternative.

      Germolene is sold under the name of Ayrtons Antiseptic Cream in Australia. I'm sure lots of other things are sold under different names.

      There are a few shops in Perth who sell UK products and will find in Yellowpages .
      When we first came we were the same --only wanted what we always had !!! We soon got used to other products .I think sometimes there are different preservatives in some products because we have different weather / temperatures to contend with example Cadbury's choc tastes a wee bit different.
      We can buy Omo ,Persil etc here as we can most brands now.
      Alergies and special needs I'm sure we have equivelant here but would check with a nutritionist or Naturepath even google the brand you prefer and check if available in AU.. I had to google a brand for my son who is working in Abu Dhabi and found they had same brand and products there --now he's moving to Africa and will source some products for him there . Happy settling in where ever you are !!--Gabby

      I've got a tube of Germolene that goes under the name of Germolene. Maybe it varies state by state?

      Germolene is just a brand of antiseptic cream we have others here --Dettol antiseptic cream and others. even have Pharmacy home brands are just as good.IF like me when I first came here I always got mossie bites !! they just loved me.I was told by my boss at the time to dab on Methylated spirits --- doesn't sting and stops the inflamation straight away and takes the itch away too. Australia isn't the back of beyond that it used to be so everything is available just in different brands otherwise do Pharmacey on-line and buy your own brands and pay more for just the name !!!!
