Default Where can I buy schottky diodes in Australia ?

Hey all.
I'm after a few schottky diodes (namely the IXYS DSSK60-02A, dual diode, 200V, 60A, or one with similar specs), but the only online source is mouser, and the prices for shipping are RIDICULOUS ($50US shipping for some diodes ?)!!!

Are there any alternative sources that may suite my needs ?
Thanks

Well I was able to find 150V, 30A schottky diodes ...

Would that suffice for a bridge rectifier (the transformer will be 30 VAC, and about 4amps).

It seems like it would suffice, but most non-schottky bridge rectifiers are rated at about 600V !!!

That will be OK.

If you canīt find higher voltage diodes try to make a two Greatz bridges, one for each of two transformer outputs.

Donīt use transformer central tap for ground connection but take plus and minus from those two bridges to create centrar ground
