Australian passport holder doesn’t need to Canadian Visa to Travel Canada with a tourism purpose. Instead, you will need an eTA. The term eTA stands for Electronic Travel Authorization. Since March 15th, 2016, every traveler to Canada must have an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) without a visa requirement. Therefore, it also applies to travelers with an Australian passport.

Previously, travelers were sometimes not admitted to the flight if they did not have an eTA. Therefore, check carefully whether you need it. Although exceptions were made to this in 2016, travelers who did not have an ETA were nevertheless allowed on board, as long as they had the correct travel documents such as a valid passport.

If you still want to be 100% sure, request the eTA in advance.  Travelers can pay for this with their credit card or PayPal. Do you think you might need a visa? Then you can also check that via this site. If you request the eTA, you will receive a confirmation on the site and by e-mail after payment.
