Australian hospitality get paid way better than the USA, that's why their tipping system is relevant. It's not necessary here, unless you want to look like some type of hot shot in front of friends

I tip for excellent service. However I don't believe it is expected here in Australia.
In USA the workers get such a low rate that tipping is expected in order for them to survive. You will get significantly worse service if you don't tip there.
I haven't read the thread but noticed a mention had been made re the American system.
It's unfortunate, but the reality of their system that they earn much much less. Tipping is absolutely necessary for them. It is not "necessary" in Australia, but it is a nice gesture for excellent service.

I tip here if I get good service. At high end restaurants 20ish for two of us dining, at cafés between 8-10ish if it's table service. For pizza I round up so anywhere between 3-5 usually.
I've spent a lot of time living overseas where it's considered compulsory to tip and I absolutely hated it! Tipping at hair dresser or day spa even if you get ordinary service I also hate getting fake over the top service overseas when you feel they're just angling at a tip.
Oh and I even got chased out to the elevator of a NYC bar once as I was leaving because I only left a 10% tip and not 15-20% which was considered 'acceptable' I still recall how absolutely astounded I was at the audacity of this young female waitress. I'm just glad tipping is entirely optional in this country!
