Lets hope they do! I also wish that every Victorian and New South Welshman who are planning holidays to visit the places in their own states that were bushfire affected. These places are continuing to suffer. Dont spend your money elsewhere...look after your own community first!! Naturally stay covid safe.

Right on there Big Fish, People soon forget disasters if not effected, some are just receiving funds now to try and rebuild, bloody disgrace really. Yep look after your own state if possible.


Cheers Axle.

As soon as lockdown in greater Melbourne is lifted we will be touring the East of Vic, spending money in the hardest hit areas.

I live in an area that does not have Covid at the moment and minimal restrictions - mainly social distancing and masks are not required.

Now things could change quickly so I thought I might get some masks so I would be ready - chemist wants $5 for a single use mask - wtf - I guess you would go through a few each day so the expense runs up.

So where is the cheapest outlet to buy masks and what sort of price should I pay for one use masks.

Ozzie
MITRE 10 have two different options. I paid $11:50 for 5 and a friend bought 50 / $ 59 at same store. Might save a fine.

Earlier this week I got 2x50 surgical masks from a reputable Australian supplier on eBay for $50. Not sure what the prices are now.

Ok thanks - we dont have Mitre 10 here and was hoping there was another well known business that may have them at a reasonable price. I guess I could just use a scarf or big hankie.

Bunnings, 10 single use for $10 or the better KN95 Mask, my understanding that they can be reused, 5 for $19, hope this helps.

Great thanks - Bunnings is why we have no Mitre 10 or any other hardware stores in the area.

Chemist Warehouse has a variety Ozzie. Free freight to some locations. Stock comes and goes.

Costco did have individually sealed disposables for about $40/50 pack. Don't know if they still have stock.

Ozbargain regularly has mask deals. If you join (free) you can set up an alert when new deals on masks/anything are posted. Some comments under deals re quality etc are useful but you have to wade thru the bs.

Core420 - do you have a link to the ebay seller?

Victorians will be issued with muzzles, not masks as they don't know how to "sit and stay".
