When he then wished to take everything back to his property in Tasmania, the import tax was going to be extortionate. So instead of paying it, he built a $50,000,000 museum and donated all of his belongings to the museum, saving himself somewhere in the range of $20,000,000.

It is a faster service, and you have the 'advantage' of exercise. In that we had to walk 1km home from the nearest shopping centre - ie that is the express bus stop.
