Where to find the Tourist Refund Scheme office?
If your purchase is part of your carry-on luggage
After you have checked in for your flight, please make your way through the Passport Control and Security. The TRS office to right of the Heinemann Duty Free entrance. Please be sure to be there at least 90 minutes prior to your flight departure to allow sufficient time for the TRS Officers to complete your claim.
If your purchase is packed in luggage you intend to check in
If you want to make a TRS claim for powders, liquids, aerosols or gels and / or oversized items (such as golf clubs) that you are not able to take on board because of these limits, take your goods to the Australian Border Force Office for verification before you check in your luggage.
The Australian Border Force Office is located on Arrivals Level of the T1 International terminal near the Swissport office and glass lifts. You will need to do this before you check your luggage for your flight.
Find more information about these restrictions here.
