Alternatives to Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl paper

I have been getting very pleasing results using Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl on my Epson R800. However, it seems rather difficult to get over here in Perth, Western Australia. Could anyone who is familiar with the Smooth Pearl paper recommend some alternative paper and on-line sources to order from please? Thanks

One of the big high street photo chains over here was selling the stuff off in piles last week so I'm wondering if Ilford paper production is to cease. I'd suggest you try everything you can lay your hands on, at the end of the day its your eyes that make the choice.

They are US distributors so I don't know if it helps but here's my #1 and #2 sources for it in sheets and rolls: - Prices are always competitive, competent sales staff, good communications - decent prices, big selection, watchout for backorders... they don't warn you with net orders

I don't know if they ship overseas or if that's even reasonable in terms of cost.

Smooth Pearl is my primary paper and the only alternative I have is Epson Premium Semi-Gloss.
