Surely there's a Kmart or something similar nearby ?

May not be the best quality tube, but it will be a tube.

If you were closer, I'd offer you a couple out of my stash..

Of course, I ended up trying more patches with little success, I will stock up again tomorrow

sorry for the lateness, but could be good for future reference.

There is a vending machine in the B1 level (carparking) of Raine Square - near the lifts.

Enter via William street, go down the ramp and take the first left, then left after the boomgates and you'll see it.

I have more success with modern tubes when I put some elbow grease into sanding before gluing. Really rough up the surface.
Still not as good as the "good old tubes".
