Would the severance work without 去 at the beginning?

If you replace it with 在, yes.

Unfortunately Duolingo disagrees

Yes, it would. 去 is not necessary in this sentence.

为什么 “留学的费用去澳大利亚高吗” 是错?

The word order is not right. Chinese and English have different word order in terms of possessions. 'A of B' in English is 'B的A' in Chinese. In this case, 'the cost of studying in Australia(A of B)' becomes 留学澳大利亚的费用(B的A)

Why is 去 at the beginning of the sentence at all?

The sentence isn't asking the cost of going to Australia, it's asking the cost of studying abroad in Australia.

The cost of studying abroad could be centralized in room and board, tuition, etc, rather than travel.

You're right. 去 is not necessary in the sentence.
