    The total cost is obviously over the $1000 limit, but I can't work out if customs takes into account the shipping cost or just uses the value of the item when deciding whether it needs duty paid. I've used the duty estimator and it suggests that I won't have to pay any duty, but I've read elsewhere that suggests they take shipping into account.

    Does anyone have any experience in this sort of case? It's a pair of Tract binos, from memory @Tahr is the local expert on Tract?
    They include the shipping cost.

    Customs seem to use whatever value the seller declares on the package.

    One pair is scratched from a fall wallaby hunting. So I have them as spares.

    Its Pot Luck
    You may get a "pass" or you may get clobbered
    GST - Duty (duty not on bino) Customs Clearance Fee - GST on top of that

    I just imported 3k US$ worth of clothing today
    AND - it looks like its completely skipped ALL fee's GST etc.
    So being my B Day - maybe a present
    Happy me - I have a win finally
    Be a 1st that is for sure !!
