Tiedowns & Grab Loops in Australia?

Hey guy's, just wondering if anyone know's where you can get extra tie-downs or grab loops in Australia? (or internationally with reasonable shipping?). Just went to get some through Alpacka and shipping to Australia for a bunch of tie-downs is $50!!!

Thanks Haydn.

Re: North Queensland Winter Safari!?

Would definitely be interested to float the Tully. Late July, early August seems like a good time to escape winter. The Tully flows all year, other creeks/rivers at that time could be pretty low. Level dependent, you could hike up and float down Cannabullen Creek to Cochable Creek and into the Tully.

Re: Tuross River vid from Sunday

Thanks for the vid Steve, looks like a great day! Mick - Bright itself is a little limited, Ovens & Buckland rivers only have a couple of rapids, King River is a great run, with a short section you can run multiple times but it's a bit of a drive from bright.

Hey Steve, Yeah rod will be packed for a flick - have not done too much saltwater stuff, so see how I go. Never realised how good the rivers are up there for rafting, although having trouble finding anything classed below IV - hence the hope for some local advice:)

Re: Packrafting trips of late!

Snowy Creek looks awesome Chris, did you run anything on the Big River while you were up there? Where abouts did you guy's start on Jacobs? Did not look like there was much water in there on the recent drive past.
