About Us

Oz-Phils Connexion is a locally owned and operated Tennant Creek clothing, handcrafted giftware and accessory resale business. Though we stock local and imported goods, we specialise in selling exotic and unusual products from Thailand, India and the Philippines.

Run by husband and wife team Derek and Miles McPadden, Oz-Phils Connexion was based at 139 Paterson Street in Tennant Creek from 2007 to mid 2012. After moving to our current location at 44 Paterson Street, Derek and Miles incorporated the successful local clothing outlet, Tennant Creek Bush Shed, into the business. They remain one of the most beloved and unique clothing and giftware businesses in the Northern Territory.

At Oz-Phils Connexion, we strongly believe in helping workers and producers in developing countries by selling fair trade preferred products. In addition to the other quality products we stock, We proudly showcase a select range of Fairtrade brands at our store, including Papemelroti, Elanora and ISHKA. We also stock a wide range of imported Filipino and Indonesian modern and traditional clothing.

Whether you are searching for gorgeous imported fashion, great gift ideas, or traditional Asian handcrafted goods, be sure to head to Oz-Phils Connexion. In addition to Tennant Creek, we service the regions of Barkly and Alice Springs.
