i think it might just be under the basic permit to get one cause there not that much and i dont see why so many people would pay that much to have one.

Mate I just checked the SA website and its not that much, that's for a specialist 'fauna' licence which is different to the 'keeping of native fauna animals'..
Keep and Sell Permit (Specialist) - Department of Environment and Natural Resources
at the bottom of the 'apply for' pdf it shows you.
Specialist permit to keep and sell protected animals -
1 year = $112
3 year = $336
5 years = $560
That cost was for a 'Fauna Dealer' IE: a reptile shop etc licenced to sell hundreds of animals etc...
thats still very steep , god i love good old nsw , i think its $170 or something like that for 5 years over here

In Canberra its like $35.50 or something for 5 years.. + we don't have to pay for import/export licences..
BUT - We have very hard rules - IE: can't have a snake for like 2 years... have to own lizards etc.etc..

And where is what you read... because that is clearly listed on the SA Environmental website. (and by clearly I mean not clear at all due to link failures)..
if you get the 'fees and listings pdf' from the right of the page its link is stupid and opens the costs for the none keeping permit but dealer permits.
On the page I linked IGNORE the link on the right ' Fees listing - Fauna Permit Unit '
and open the pdf at the bottom 'apply for a Keep and Sell Permit (Specialist animals) (74kb pdf)'
at the bottom of that pdf it has the costs for keeping them.
**ignore post now as after i posted you modified your post

From the initial OP question, I'd say the member should try something like a Carpet or Children's Python for a year or two before acquiring a GTP. Sounds like no experience but just decided he wants one on a whim. Not a good basis for starting out with GTPs, which I admit are not "difficult" if you have a sound knowledge of basic reptile husbandry.
Not being critical, just suggesting a better way to make the GTP experience less stressful... for the animal and the keeper.
sorry but if you liked the animal as much as you should too own it, especially with a fairly long lifespan,
You wouldn't whinge about $100. Especially in the scheme of start up costs and the price of the snake itself.
I pay this for my bird. And I'd never consider not. Because I adore him.
