Cigarette duty free

Ok soi have my legal total limit waiting in Sydney airport for when I land but I still have some packets left from some I brought with me from home ( woolies( not d f). Can I bring them back with me or will it be classed as over the limit. I suppose the question is can I only have two packets each per person with me when We go through customs?do I need to throw away 3 packets ????

http://www.customs.gov.au/site/page4352.asp says the 50 cigarette per person limit applies regardless of where or how the products were purchased.

Technically 50 cigs per adult is the limit into Aust.

I doubt that they would seize and open packet or 2 if you declared that you were in the process of smoking them.

But ... if they do pick you up for being over the limit, the following applies:

"Be aware that if you exceed Australia’s duty-free concession

limits you will be charged duty and tax on all items of that

type (general goods, alcohol or tobacco), not just the items

which exceed the limits."
