Supplies in Australia ....

Since arriving in Adelaide I've been wanting to go visit a Art & Craft shop in the city believing that they will have the materials I need to do Hanji once I get back here  in a few years time and start up my business.  
I knew that they had a small selection of both Korean and Japanese Mulberry papers  so I went to investigate. 
It was interesting to see what papers Eckersley's had  and from the range of about 15 different papers I bought 3 or 4 different ones that I don't have in my personal stock.  I  know that I can order a much better range online directly from Korea or from the U.S. therefore it's not going to be too much of a problem to source the paper on my return. 
Next I went to check out the carboard and was disappointed to find that they only stock the 1mm and 2mm thick board. I was told that they can't get the 3mm cardboard so unless I can source it from somewhere else I will need to glue together a 1mm and a 2mm sheet  to get my 3mm board for doing this craft.
I must admit I was a bit disappointed but we are talking about Adelaide here and I'm sure the Eastern States of Australia would have a better range of papers and supplies of the correct board.
 Please, if anyone knows of a good supplier I'd love to hear from you.
