What doesn't australia have?

I come over in October on a work/holiday visa i"m curious as to some of the things they may not have. i met a girl that said she had been and couldn't find peanut butter any where. maybe shes crazy but i figure id check it out. see if shes right. this pertains to food clothing anything random as can be. or maybe prices of things that would compare here to the usa.

thanks jason

Peanut butter? I have seen heaps of it in Coles and Woolworths. From prices and products perspective I cannot think of anything they would not have here except for less popular overseas brands.

I've been away from Australia for almost eight years, but depending on how much it has changed the main difference I have found that in Canada there are a lot more options. For example, tons of different varieties for flavors of foods, icecream, etc. I sure wish vegemite was easier to find outside of Australia though!

hey Jason, here in the west, not sure about cigarettes but I know they are expensive. Milk is about $4 for 3 litres, 6 pack of beer is about $15 / $20 and a loaf of bread is around $2

Hope that helps!

Hi , being from the US here is my take on things. Cigs are 2x's the price of the US. $128.
Most food is not too pricey. (Fruit and veges are pricey.) A little more then in the US but my big problem was trying to find items. They are not where you would think they would be..and you dont have as many options as you do in the US.
