It’s a fairly common question we often see asked, and the answer isn’t all that clear.
Unfortunately, Aquarium Co Op doesn’t ship directly to Australia.
However, we have a pretty simple solution that gets around this restriction. Essentially, you’ll be able to get any item from the Aquarium Co Op store shipped to Australia, all for a crazy low price.
How to Deliver Items from the Aquarium Co Op Online Store to Australia
First off, you’ll need a real U.S. address. There’s no two ways around it.
How are you supposed to get a real U.S. address if you don’t live in the USA? Ask a friend? What if you don’t know anybody in the United States?
Don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than it sounds!
United States companies called “freight forwarders” offer US addresses to foreign customers. The foreign customers then use these addresses for purposes of international shipping.
When you open an account with a freight forwarder, you receive a US-based address. You can then easily order from any US-based company by using your US address.
With so many Freight Forwarders out there, it can be difficult to know where to start. The best that we have found is called MyUS.
They are trustworthy, won’t break the bank and they do not charge any additional taxes, so you won’t be caught out by extra fees. This isn’t always the case with every Freight Forwarder.
We’ve worked with MyUS several times, and have shipped multiple packages using their service.
You can order from any US-based company and have that company ship your order to your MyUS address. It doesn’t matter that you actually live in Australia or some other international location. All that matters is that you have a US-based address.

The process is really simple. When you’re filling in the delivery details on your online order, you’ll enter the address given to you by your Freight Forwarder.
Once your Freight Forwarder receives your package, they’ll box it up with any other orders that they may have for you and send them to your address in Australia.
With MyUS, your Aquarium Co Op order could be with you in no time!
