Hi B,B & C

Sorry I can't answer specificly about Adelaide, but we got ours at Big W (they had adults and childrens and were around $10.00-$15.00), they don't have them all the time so it's the luck of the draw with this option, this time of year may be difficult.

We also got a pair from our local BCF store, don't know if they have this chain in SA. (They were a little more expensive at $19.99 but appear to be better quality).

Looking forward to meeting you onboard

Hey jenny,
thanks for your info.

I've got my feelers out but if we can not get reef shoes. we will have to depend on "crocs"

Yes! it will be nice to meet you onboard also. Do you have children with you?

Our grand daughter will be 13yrs

Hi B & B & C,

Try Rivers. They have a shop at Harbourtown that I am aware of, but probably have one closer to you as well.

I got a suitable pair there some time ago. Not sure if they still stock them, but worth checking out.

Happy shopping...
Mark.

I have seen them in Big W, Adults and Childrens, maybe give them a call.

Not sure if Rays Outdoors also might have them.

Good Luck

Amazing what you can find in Cheap as Chips. I go there everytime I am in Adelaide, down at The Bay. Wish they had them in NSW. Glad you found them, and bet they were reasonably priced too.
