In February, 2013, my wife and I are coming to Australia for a 3-week vacation. Part of that time will be spent in and around Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast. What is the norm relative to tipping? Do we tip or not? If so, how much? If so, under what circumstances and for what service? In the USA where we live, tipping is rampant and spreading. Even people who cut hair now expect a tip. When my wife has her hair done, it costs about $150 plus a tip. Wow!!! It really adds up. What is all this like in Australia and particularly, in and around Surfers Paradise?
