    Default Is Australia a place to buy camera and camera accessories?

    Hi,

    I'm traveling to Sydney this Sunday and wonder if I could get a good deal from Sydney, taking advantage of the Duty Free, in spite of the high exchange rate of Aussie Dollar.
    Please share if you know of any good deal.

    I can recommend you to buy a real kangaroo hide camera bag in Australia.

    But dogs may chase after you in Singapore when you carry it.

    All the male kangaroos are now running around ball-less.

    It's because their balls have been cut off to make keychains for tourists.

    Most shops in SG can beat prices in Sydney, and duty free doesn't mean it's cheaper than the city if you know how to bargain.
    Save your space for food, and other nice stuff.
    If you know how to navigate to Drummyone, there's a warehouse place for branded good, and in Auburn there are outlets for sporting good..

    Interesting it's cheaper to purchase GX7 body in Australia via the website you referred. Thanks for your suggestion

    True, wouldn't rule out that possibility. All the best with the bargain hunting

    A grey market set for $600 AUD with AU shipping. Approx S$685.
    I guess local price is around $8-$9XX?
