The store, locate on Maiden Lane in Covent Garden, has long been a provider of all those little tastes of home that you can’t get down the Sainsbury’s Local. But from today, the shop is no more.

The Australia Shop was always the first port of call for Tim Tams, Twisties and the like, ideal for home-sick new arrivals adjusting to life in a different hemisphere and for bringing that Down Under vibe to your summer BBQs.

The owners of the shop, Mike and Liz Mills, plan to continue the store but with a focus now on online sales.
