There seems to be a bit of a shortage on rice hulls because of the drought, and finding places to sell them to you is hard.
Ive found a place in the eastern suburbs that not only will sell to the public at a reasonable price, but in small bales, ~0.7m3 (~50-60L) for $26. This is a much more managable size for use brewers as opposed to the 130L bales of old.
Oban Trading - 9 Oban Rd, Ringwood Vic 3134
Im personaly wrapped at this as they are literally 2 min from me!
Eastern Distribution used to supply all the pet/stock stores but i dont think they do now. Here's a link to their stockist list. you could try calling ones in your area to see if they stock bales (big or small).
I personally will be getting a small bale from oban trading in a couple of weeks.
(no affiliation etc etc).
edit: I forgot to mention, they only have 1 bail in stock at the moment but they told me they should have worked out in a week or so
