    Will REI not ship to Oz? If not, I'm sure someone would be willing to buy some for you and then send them along...

    Do a Google for best pricing. Here is one source:
    www.jacksrbetter.com/index_files/Stakes.htm

    I prefer these stakes. They are pretty popular:

    Dont know much about titanium stakes other than I've read they bend easy and are a bit pricey. This may be an even better deal on stakes than the Groundhogs. Lighter and cheaper:

    I can't speak for all stakes, but I own a set of the very ones that gunn parker linked to, and they are practically indestructible. I've hammered them into very rocky and tough soil without any visible damage at all. I can't say the same for the aluminum ones I've tried in the past, but I'm not familiar with the Ground Hog ones.

    That's the first I've heard about titanium stakes bending. I've had aluminum stakes bend like crazy, but I've driven my Groundhogs into my compacted gravel/soil driveway with a hammer and they've barely even had dents afterwards.

    titanium tent pegs

    I carry the Eastman aluminum pegs (pointed to the in the whiteblaze post that FanaticFringer linked to) when I'm not in rock country, and titanium when I am.

    I've bent an Eastman, driving it into a buried rock.

    I like buying from the backpackinglight.com site. I think the titanium spikes I have are these . Not nails. I have to get them out of the ground sometimes by looping a bit of cord around the hook and pulling hard.

    BPL also sell these that resemble the nails you pointed to.

    go buy some 6" long aluminum gutter nails. They are cheap and weigh next to nothing
