I have been looking around on the net and found a couple in Australia.
What was interesting, though, is it appears that many of the companies I buy from here in the USA can ship to Australia.
The idea is big stores (chain stores) have many overstock and return items that they need to get rid of. So, they sell it to a liquidator warehouse company and they in turn sell it to people like you to resell.
I am not sure if there are any big sporting goods stores in Australia. If you know of a few, PLEASE send their names as i can maybe get you even more sources even more direct to what you want to sell.
Since shipping can be done cheaply by ship freight to Australia, its a viable option also..
The cracker website seems like it will have some good gems in it if you look around a bit.. The Genco, which I have bought from several times, will give you good product for the price you pay. That is why I listed it as a very good source. Also, I am quite positive you can have export setup through them or atleast have them cooperate with an export company to ship to you.
Check out the
above links.. Look through the Australian sources.. Call them up on the phone. Ask them about their "wholesale lots". Ask them if they know of anyone else who sells overstocks and returns from stores, etc..
Also think over the USA export idea. I already know it will work, as I have imported from China product before.. The issue would only be the tariff/duty taxes.. The shipping cost can be kept surprisingly low by using: train/sea freight, where it goes by train and then ship, rather than semi/plane.. Really cheap by train/sea.
Here, are some of my searches. I can't recall which ones were most fruitfull:
HOW I FOUND THE AUSTRALIAN SOURCES, SO YOU CAN FIND MORE:
Then, I sifted
through the pages until I found some good looking ones..
My interests are fishing, camping, sports etc.
How do i go about selling brand name products. I am wanting all the advise you can offer. Desperately needing to do ebay full time from home. (currently working full time and have 3 kids so need to be home more.

O'REILLY: All right, Lis ... I sell bibles in Tarzana, CA. Lenny comes in, & he's got a ... beard. He's wearing a dress ... I have to hire him?
LIS WIEHL: You can't not hire Lenny.
O'REILLY: Yes, but ... Don't you see my business point here? ... the state of Calif .. is forcing me to hire people that may be detrimental to my business.
LIS WIEHL: appearance shouldn't matter. When you're selling bibles.
O'REILLY: Ms. Rivers, you understand ... better than Lis because she went to Harvard Law School, and that disqualifies her from common sense.
