Buying Local Aussie Goods

Generally, department stores are open 7 days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Some locations offer longer
hours on certain days of the week.
Please be warned that if you buy items on tour to be shipped to your home, customs import charges are
hardly ever included in the price. Sales tax or GST (Goods & Services Tax) is normally already included on
price tags; GST refunds, if applicable, are processed at the departing airport from the relevant country.
