I tip a lot more since having friends in the industry (as they like to call themselves).
Usually in higher end restaurants though and only if the service was worth it.

I only ever worked in places that passed the tips to the staff, some at the end of the night, and others at the end of the week. If a tip was just left with the bill it was pooled to be divvied up, but if it was handed directly to me, or given to the owner at the till and they expressly stated that it was for me, it was handed straight to me.
I don't think it is necessary to tip in Australia, but I always leave something, even if I just round the bill up to the nearest 5 or 10 dollars.

I only tip for exceptional service or food. If I am tipping only for the food I make sure I make that known.
I live in a medium size country town and the service leaves a lot to be desired.

Nope I don't tip. It isn't required and I don't like this trend of people starting to tip in Aus as I don't want it to start becoming standard. People get paid fairly here (and actually pretty well, I used to work in the industry) and they do not need to substitute their income with tips like they do in the US. I am not a fan.

I don't think its a trend? I know we've always tipped at restaurants for good service and I've been going to restaurants since I was a child and I was born in the 70,s!!
Most of the popular city restaurants here in Sydney when you have a booking of more than 10 already add a 10% gratuity to the bill

It is becoming more of a trend I think, in SA at least. There has been an intro of tip jars on more and more counters and space for tips on the bill. I think its cheeky.

I don't tip, hospitality staff are paid appropriately in this country.
