If you've been ogling a fancy new GoPro camera for a while now, Boxing Day is a great time to take the plunge and finally pick one up. Not only is summer right around the corner, bringing with it the bright days and blue skies that lend themselves so well to mountain biking, cliff-hiking and other outdoor activities ripe for GoPro filming, the wealth of Boxing Day sales means there's plenty of opportunity to score a sweet deal on the entire GoPro range.
Best of all, with the GoPro line currently in its seventh iteration, older models like the GoPro HERO6 and GoPro HERO5 are likely to see steep discounts as retailers clear them out to make way for the HERO7. If you don't need newer features like 4K/60FPS video capture or the ability to live stream right from the camera, you can save yourself quite a bit of cash by grabbing an older GoPro at a clearance price.
We've picked through the many Boxing Day deals from Aussie retailers and selected the best GoPro deals in the table below:

GoPro is a brand specialising in wearable action cameras, made for capturing videos of high-speed and high-intensity sports like snowboarding, rock-climbing, surfing and more. The company was founded in 2002 by Aussie Nicholas Woodman and was inspired by a surfing trip where Nicholas wanted to capture professional shots but couldn't do so with a traditional camera.
Part of the appeal of GoPro is the wide range of accessories it supports. Harnesses and clips let you attach GoPro cameras to all manner of objects, whether it be a drone for aerial photography or your own body for a point-of-view video as you ride down a mountain trail or hike through a thick forest.
Pricing for the latest GoPro models tends to be fairly consistent across traditional retailers, though some occasionally cut 5–10% off the RRP for a competitive edge. For a truly compelling deal, you'll need to look to older models, as it's here that you'll find retailers like those listed above serving up sizeable discounts in order to clear out their remaining stock.
Alternatively, you can find refurbished GoPro cameras selling for significantly less than RRP at online marketplaces like Amazon and eBay. Sure, you're not getting a fresh-out-of-the-box device, but so long as you choose a reputable seller with a proven refurbishing process in place, you can save a lot of money without sacrificing quality.
Deciding whether to buy online or leg it around your local retailers involves a few key considerations. Staying at home and perusing the Internet means you don't have to wade through Boxing Day crowds, plus it's much easier to compare pricing from numerous retailers to find the best deal. On the other hand, you'll have to wait longer for your GoPro to be delivered and depending on which retailer you buy from, you may have to pay extra for shipping, too.
If you head down to the shops instead, you'll face the throngs of other bargain-hunters out to snap up a Boxing Day deal and that can mean suffering through long lines and fumbling with your phone to compare in-store pricing against online offers. The benefit here is that you can get a better feel for your potential purchase by eyeballing it up close. If you head to a camera specialist, you'll be able to discuss the pros and cons of different GoPro models with the staff. If you're lucky, you may even be able to negotiate a better deal in-person than you could online, too.

Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
