At Tokyo Mart in Sydney they have some. Sister store of Tokyo mart in Subi and Fuji mart in Melbourne.
If you can't buy it you can make it.
The liquor is shouchu. Go to Dan Murphy or another specialist asian style liquor store and buy either Kaido or Shiranami or maybe Kuro Kirishima. In Perth I think the Korean run liquor store under the Criterion in Hay st was the last place I saw it there. At Dan Murphy the staff may tell you it is sake. Its not and its nothing like sake. It is more like a vodka that is made from sweet potato instead of potato.
Dan Murphys seems to have Kaido (they call it Hamada Syuzou) everywhere as per below:
Don't use the flavoured Korean soju - thats a different thing. Also, the more interesting, expensive and flavourful shouchus out there will be no good for this
Your next step is to find a nice fruit flavoured soda that is not too sweet. I recommend the san pellegrino lemon or grapefruit drinks.
So chuck in ice, a good pour of Kaido shouchu and then top up with the San pell. That is very, very close to the "chuhai" that you will get at a good izakaya in Japan. That is what the canned drinks are trying to replicate.
