We usually have a cocktail or wine with dinner. From just quickly checking it looks as though one is paying quite a bit more in Australia than in the U.S. Is this correct??? Also how much local currency should one take? Thanks for any input.

Yes, Australia is very expensive. Use a credit card. They are not into tipping.

JoAnne. -- If you like scotch (or other spirits) straight up or on the rocks, be forewarned: The pour in Australia is, in the words of my late mother-in-law, "the teardrop of a sparrow." Be prepared to order a double!
