Mary, you need to apply for a Chinese tourist L type or transit G type entry permit for that. It will cost AUD 109.5 per person.

Thanks for the info above.
I thought if I was a tourist in China for less that 72 hours I would not need visa.
Is that correct

Mary, I’m afraid it's not correct. The 72 hour policy is only applicable to those who travel by flight transiting in a Chinese city for less than 72 hours. If you want to enjoy the 72 hour free transit, you can only transit in ONE Chinese city, but you will transit in two. Thus, you don’t qualify for the 72 hour free transit.
