The GoPro HERO is one of the world’s best selling action cameras and is available for sale throughout Australia through a number of online and offline retail stores and official dealers. This article will help you learn how to find the best place to buy one help you make the choice when it comes time to buy one.
Buying Online Vs. Buying From A Local Retail Store
The two best ways to buy a GoPro in Australia are to buy online through an Australian online store or visit and buy directly from a retail store near you.
If you choose to buy online, it’s easy to find an online store in Australia that will deliver the product to your door speedily regardless if you live in the city or country. The big benefit of buying online is that usually you can purchase your item for a lower price than in retail stores.
However, the benefit of buying from a local retail store through an official dealer is that you can touch and feel the camera before you buy and it’s easy to return if there is ever a problem with it. These are some reasons why some people prefer to buy from an actual store.

What To Look For When Buying A GoPro Camera
Everyone wants to get the best deal when they shop, so here’s what to look for when shopping for a GoPro.
Authorized Dealer – Make sure the place you buy from, whether it’s online or off, is an authorized GoPro dealer so you are fully covered in your investment.
Price – Compare prices between stores. Make sure you look at the price of shipping if buying online, although many online stores will offer free shipping.
Warranty – Does it come with a store warranty? GoPro covers its cameras with a 1 year factory warranty, but if you want that extra comfort of knowing you can return it to the store you bought it from, that might be a better choice for you.
Accessories or Bonuses – Some retailers will often throw in a special free bonus such as an extra SD memory card of extra mount which helps them get an edge over their competition which is great for the customer too.schedulemymedia
