You can get corflute (which is what Australians call it) at signage shops, plastic centres e.t.c. Depending on the size of your cage prices will vary. Although I got mine for around $30 to do my whole cage with some left over. This was for a 3x4 grid cage.

Heres a link to some corflute places in melbourne: http://www.signwave.com.au/locations.html

You can ring them and quote a price. Just select victoria from the location.

Also its good to have some measurements ready becasue most stores will laser cut it for you. Plus it may save you some money, instead of getting one large piece you have one cut to size. Make sure you add around 15cm or 6 inches to your measurements these are for the sides.

Aspect packaging also sells corflute: http://www.aspectpack.com.au/corflute_products.asp

You can contact them here: http://www.aspectpack.com.au/contact.asp

Grids: You can get grids at Bunnings warehouse. And maybe Kmart. They used to have them at Big W but stopped. Try bunnings they are usually $10-$12 for a pack of 5 if I can remember corectly. Kmart may have them in stock but im unsure if they discontinued them or not. They should be in the storage section of the store.

Feel free to ask any more questions I hope ive helped a little.

Hi Meggie,
I ended up finding more at the reject shop. Cost was $20 for 10 squares. You could ring round and see if any close to you have them. Good luck.

Well, just puttin it out there but my father is a signwriter and he could easily get a hold of some corflute, not to mention the huge sheets we have of it out back.
So if anyone is havin trouble just email me
P.S
I should check my email a bit more often so I'm sorry if I don't respond right away.
