Kingsford Smith International Airport

Don’t buy cigarettes at Kingsford Smith International Airport (even though they’re roughly half the price of off-airport smokes). Government anti-smoking levies ensure that, even duty-free, they’re typically about A$52 (US$47.65) a carton. Alcohol and perfumes are cheap, as are some electronics and cameras. Clinique beauty products are exceptional value. Gift-packaged three-packs of Australian wines are popular. Kangaroo meat, abalone and other Aussie fare are in dry ice for travel. With kids in tow – or if buying presents for children – visit the new Wiggles duty-free store where merchandise linked to the globally-hot kiddie super-group is modestly tagged. Another worthwhile buy: renowned down-under brand R.M. Williams (boots, shirts and other clothing).
