    Hope you dont plan on bringing it back or you are liable to paying the tax back that you claimed on TRS.

    You could simply not declare in on reentry however if you get caught you may not only have to pay tax back but a fine also.

    https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Ente/Tour/Are-you-a-traveller

    Bringing goods back into Australia for which you have already received a TRS refund
    If you are aged 18 years or over, you can bring up to AUD 900 worth of goods into Australia duty-free, or AUD 450 if you are younger than 18. Families travelling together can pool this allowance (a couple with one child can bring in a total of AUD 900 + AUD 900 + AUD 450 = AUD 2250 worth of goods into Australia without paying duty or GST). This is called your passenger concession.

    If the total value of the goods you are bringing into Australia is greater than your passenger concession, including goods for which you have previously claimed a tax refund under TRS and any purchased overseas:

    you must declare all of these goods

    you will need to repay the GST refund back on the goods you claimed under the TRS

    duty and GST will apply to all items purchased, not just goods over the limit of your passenger concession.

    Penalties can apply if you don’t declare that you have goods in excess of your passenger concession.

      there is a good chance that the border force is understaffed every day of the week.

        Its a chance one has to take on their own. If caught out then they only get themselves to blame for it. Either way makes for an entertaining watch for me whenever someone gets done in every border security episode.

          some items are easier to go unnoticed than others. fine jewellery and consumers electronics are of the easiest items to carry pass bf.

    Ok, seems the TRS is more hassle than its worth for a couple $$, and that wasnt the information I was chasing anyways.

    What I would like to know is where would be the best place to purchase one?

      There are some small drones for only $15 that would make a good investment for your flying skills. Have a go at a small cheapie first.

        Yeah was about to say. Hefty price going for a drone. Could be one expensive lesson for someone who is inexperienced flying drones.

    If its your first drone maybe look into alternatives as it will be a expensive toy to break also look into where your going to fly it
    As you cant fly it everywhere a good app to check out (can i fly there).

    Recently purchased a Xiaomi mi drone and all in all a fantastic drone for half the price might be bigger but handles pretty good and the picture quality is pretty good only flown it no more then 500m lose picture now and then but limited quick fix after all cant fly it past 500m anyway according to australian regulations

    But then again if money is not a issue then go for it :)
