    should do seeing as Australia and UK are both PAL regions.

    Yeah, like the member mentioned above, they will work. Its still Europe, so the region will remain as PAL.

    Australia isn't in Europe. Maybe I read your post wrong?

    @OP: Yes they should work.

    I did some quick searching and found out that Australia doesn't seem to come under Europe for some reason. But thanks for the support anyway Almo. I appreciate it. :)

    Why would you come to Australia and buy Wii games?

    The current exchange rate is 42 Australian cents to a British pound.

    British Game RRP: ₤40 = $AU94.30
    Australian Game RRP: $AU100 = ₤42.40

    It's cheaper to buy them in England. Isn't it?

    at the current rate it is.

    but, i would question the practicallity of actually going all the way to
    oz to buy games which are readily available here in the UK.
    also, what if the game(s) is/are damaged...how would you go about replacing them?
    it's not like the OP will be able to walk into their local game/gamestation and
    get them exchanged.
