- Purchased from an inwards duty free shop on arrival.

Group 2 - alcohol
2.25 litres of alcoholic beverages for each passenger aged 18 years or over.

Group 3 - tobacco
Sept 2012 - The federal government has cut the duty-free allowance to 50 cigarettes (effectively two packs) from September 1, 2012 and any brought into the country over the limit have to be declared for payment of federal duties or be surrendered . 

You can pool your duty free concessions if you are a family travelling together.

Family means husband and wife and, if any, a child who is, or children who are, under the age of 18 years.

Most personal items such as new clothing, footwear, and articles for personal hygiene and grooming (but not fur or perfume concentrates) may also be brought into Australia in accompanied baggage free from duty and/or tax.

If you have anything in excess of your duty free concession, declare the goods and provide proof of purchase to Customs for calculation of any duty and tax to be paid.
