Tourist Refund Scheme in Australia

Tourist Refund Scheme
Visitors to Australia are entitled to claim any Goods and Services Tax (GST) on purchases over A$300 per store. The GST component is 10% of the sale price. Do this at the refund booth located past Customs. After doing the paperwork—you need to have the goods and receipt with you, not in your checked luggage—you will receive your refund by check on the spot. You can convert this to cash at any foreign exchange booth at Sydney Airport. Claims are only available up to 30 minutes prior to the scheduled departure of your flight. – source: Frommer’s Travel Book
