I will discuss The Dutch Shop and De Hollandse Winkel in this article.
The Dutch Shop
This is the only Dutch food store that I know of in Melbourne, Australia. It is located in the outer suburb Vermont South. The shop is a single room with lots of shelves that contain many flavours of liquorice and food like stroopwafels, tumtummetjes and frikandellen. Yes, if you're wondering where to buy stroopwafels in Melbourne, Australia - you can buy them here!
Other food includes Dutch cheese, hagelslag and groenten van HAK. The store also sells other Dutch products such as clogs (klompen), postcards and painted tiles with Dutch landscapes.
The shop used to have a website (http://www.dutchshop.com.au) but it does not seem to exist anymore.

You can get there by car or by public transport. The easiest way is to take tram 75 just outside Flinders Street Station (or wherever you live near this tram line) and travel all the way to the final stop of this tram line. Walk further by following the road and Morack Road should appear on your left after a while. Walk into Morack Road and the shop is located on your left.

De Hollandse Winkel
You may also come across De Hollandse Winkel in your online searches for Dutch food in Melbourne. This shop was located in the suburb Blackburn.
When I went to the address (1 Alfred St, Blackburn), all that remained was an abandoned building with a typical Dutch facade. The building was for sale as well.
As a result, the only Dutch food store is The Dutch Shop mentioned above.
