Does anyone have any suggestions that will allow me easy access to buying ASX shares from the UK?

How about getting an Australian broker, or is that too simple?

If you want an Oz broker try commsec, the trading arm of the commonwealth bank (CBA). It's one of the big 4 banks. $20 a trade. Check their website for eligibility to open an account outside the country. There's a tax treaty between UK and Oz so I can't see it being an issue.

Some Australian shares are quoted on the LSE.

If you want to sell via TDW the sell order lasts just one day.
Take care, you can buy, but selling is more of a problem.

Why dont you buy the australian index on a monthly basis a set amount,

now may be a good entry point, via most brokers I think the epic is AUST

Over the next few years should be worthwhile

Really?
"This site is directed and available to and for the benefit of Australian residents only (2010)."
Hardly sounds like CommSec are drumming up foreign custom does it?
