Application for Visa to Australia is FREE.
Most agents (travel) charge an adminstrative fee or some call it service fee.

In short, travel agents need to earn such money.
Reason for not waiving these charges is that if you were to go there and perform Visa on Arrival, it will cost you much more, considering the fact that you are going to pay Australian Dollar.

Bear in mind that checking your visa expiry is definitely free and you should be able to check it with the agent who helped you perform your visa previously.

Some travel agents perform this visa for free if you purchase travel packages/air tickets from there. Whereas some simply reduce the admin fee.

Let's just pray you have some nice travel agent friends who can help you perform your E-Visa for FREE to Australia, or if not, prepare to pay those administrative fees.
