G'day everyone,

Welcome to our latest newsletter and my apologies for the very long break since I last wrote to you.    Over the past 18 months much of my time has been devoted to our Uggs and other sheepskin products.   I am happy to say that we now have a dedicated sister web site, Uggs Down Under where you can find a full range of these goods.   To launch this new site we have many ways for you to win your own pair of genuine Aussie Uggs including a photo competition.

I've just added a brand new section on our web site, Aussie Icons.   Here we'll feature many famous and uniquely Aussie items and the first two you can read about are Vegemite and Thongs.    You can also get your own pair of thongs or tube/jar of Vegemite to sample.

Most Australians are sad to see the recent passing of our King of TV comedy.   You can read about this and Kylies' cancer scare in the In the News part of our site.

Are you missing out on all the goss from Down Under?    Well you can now catch up on Australian entertainment, fashion, TV soaps, celebrities, sports news and more through our magazines category.    We'll rush you the latest issue of your favourite Aussie magazine.   There are currently 22 titles to choose from and there is definitely no commitment to a long term subscription so why not sample one that takes your fancy.

Who is Tim the Yowie Man?   Find out and also read about the mystery Blue Mountains panther and Tassie tigers in our Crikey stories.

I've added heaps of new products to our range in the last few weeks - everything from inflatable kangaroos to eucalyptus soap, laughing kookaburras and The Wiggles books & CDs.      Check out these and lots more on our Home page.
