Those prices are crazy, even by super inflated Australian standards!

My first service was also expensive, but to be fair the mechanic's not going to spend ages scouring online for the best prices like I would, they just order the overpriced official Porsche parts from their regular dealer and charge it on to you with a markup.

I now buy everything online from Pelican or eBay and do the easy stuff myself (e.g the charcoal cabin filter is a 10 minute job with 1 screw, and shouldn't cost you more than about $30!), or take the more complex parts to my mechanic and just pay for the labour.
