    Places that I've bought it from in Sydney have mainly been around the CBD. Sugarfix at Pitt St Mall sell it in various forms (when I moved away from Sydders about 2 years ago they were talking about stocking Dublin, but I'm not sure if they have or not). There's also a health food shop in the Pitt St Mall in the food court directly under Central Point tower.

    For the people who were discussing importing bottles of Dublin - When I was living in Newie, there was a sweets shop that sold Dublin, but only in the glass bottles. She said she would be interested in talking about buying crates of them, but I never got around to it. Also, Bibina Wholesale in Warners Bay sold cans - a case for $45. I don't know if either of them would ship, you'd have to call and find out.

    Now that I'm in Canberra, this shit is everywhere. I can buy it at uni, or wander down to the local shops and pick up some cans. Still horrifically expensive, but soo worth it. One thing I have been missing from Newie/Sydders is all the other cool shit - caffeinated Mountain Dew, Big Red, etc etc etc.

    i was in fremantle on the weekend and discovered that coles is selling cans of dr pepper for $1.79 from the fridge section.

    they're the dutch imports.
    this is the first time in a very long time that i have seen a major retailer selling dr pepper. i wonder if it might start to make a come back?

    Haha! Just found this thread. Have been a fan of Dr. Pepper since it's release in Australia :D It all started when Me and a friend would collect his dads gold ring pulls from some beer and traded 5 (I think) for a free Can of Dr Pepper :D so we had about 30 ring pulls to trade from every case!!

    I actually visit Newcastle a couple of times a month. I was literally in Bibina 2 weeks ago and they had 24 pack of Dr. Pepper for about $25 - I don't know if this was a special or their normal price now!

    Either way, if ppl in Sydney (CBD area) are interested, I would be happy to get you a supply.

    for anyone local at the top of Wantirna Mall there is a part shop selling all sorts of american drinks (inc Dr pepper) and a few american lollies.

    i spoke to the owner before the store was open and he said $3 a can (from the fridge ofc) but he could do a better deal if you bought a pack rather than a single can.

    Yeah I paid $22 for a 12 pack at the Darrell Lea in Bass Hill Plaza near Bankstown. These guys have a heap of different drinks in single can (cherry coke, cherry pepsi, moutain dew code red, doctor peper, diet doctor peper, doctor peper cherry, A&W) and have 12 can boxes of can's but these seem a bit more random as to what they have in stock.

    But I just grab a 12 pack when I am out and keep them in the fridge for special occations or when people come over and go on abotu not having had it in ages I give them a taste of the dr Peper goodness.

    it's the only american made dr pepper that sill uses sugar instead of HFCS.

    it's a better tasting drink than the HFCS variety, but still not quite as tasty as the version made in the UK.

    I only just noticed that USA Foods has 48 (2x24 Cartons) cans of Dublin Dr Pepper for $59.95 posted.

    So around $1.25 a can.

    Ah, hadn't checked again after my last order. I just received an email this morning that it has shipped already after placing the order last night. Can't complain about that.

    Are you looking at the right promo? it's $59.95 for 2 slabs including postage to anywhere in Australia.
