Sightseeing and activities

If you wish to try iconic and once in a lifetime activities such as scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef, wine tasting in one of Australia’s award winning wineries or a scenic flight over Uluru then you will need to budget accordingly as often these experiences aren’t cheap, but they are worth every penny. Don't forget, we can book many excursions in advance so that you can spread the cost to suit you.
One of the best things about Australia though is the abundance of scenic walks, beaches and forests you can explore for free, without spending a penny. For advice on where to go and tips on what to see then give one of our Travel Specialists a call today.

Eating out and tipping

Australia is well known for its gourmet food and wine and with a wide range of eateries from pop-ups to Michelin Star restaurants there is something to suit every budget. Tipping in Australia is completely voluntary and up to the consumer. Some establishments do include a tip if there are a certain number of people dining, however any additional costs should be clearly highlighted on the bill.


The goods and services tax in Australia is a flat 10% tax on all goods and services- accommodation, eating out, transport, clothing etc. There are some exceptions such as basic food stuffs but by law GST is included in the shelf price of goods.

Useful information

All the arrangements that you made, transfers and accommodation, tours, car hire, etc worked out perfectly...thanks again!
