    Some goods brought into Australia may require payment of customs duty and sales tax. However, you are allowed to bring in a number of goods tax-free as hand luggage. Amounts of $A10,000 or more (or the equivalent in foreign currency) must be declared on arrival and departure. Certain foods, plants, weapons, firearms and drugs are subject to controls or prohibition.
    The Tourist Refund Scheme allows overseas travelers to receive a refund on the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and Wine Equalization Tax (WET) for goods bought in Australia. Travelers can claim the refund from customs officers at Tourist Refund Scheme booths at international airports or cruise terminals when departing Australia. For further information visit the Australian Customs Service website.
