Insulation Foam.. where in Australia?

So I live in South Australia and I don't think we have any of those Pink Insulation Foams that people use for props.. unless any Aussies here can tell me otherwise? :S

I just googled these guys

http://www.foilboard.com.au/

And their foam looks a lot like the white insulation foam we have in the US. I've worked with A LOT of different foams and to be perfectly honest as long as it is rigid you can do whatever you want with it. Some people swear UP AND DOWN over the pink and blue foams, and they're good don't get me wrong, but they're not irreplaceable.

Yarp. I can't give you a name of anywhere in Adelaide, but pink/blue/white insulation foam are pretty commonly come by if you know the right place to look. Have you done the obvious and googled?

Something in the back of my mind is telling me that either pink or blue we don't get in Aus. But the other, we do. If you really struggle, I can track down a supplier for you.

Just passing this along because a costumer friend posted it up. Bear in mind that she's Sydney based (as am I).
You're looking for the ultra dense type (extruded polystyrene).
