We'll help you to get the best Australian Dollar exchange rate

We compare the Australian Dollar rates from dozens of the UK's biggest currency suppliers including the Post Office, supermarkets, high street banks and specialist online travel money providers, so you can see in an instant who is offering the best deals after commission and delivery charges have been accounted for. Many of our travel money affiliates also offer our customers exclusive exchange rates that are even better than if you go to them direct, and on average our customers save £59 when they compare with us.

Generally speaking, specialist online travel money providers and bureau de change offer the best Australian Dollar exchange rates, followed by the supermarkets, the Post Office and then the banks. The absolute worst rates of all are found at the airports so try to avoid buying there at all costs. If you're short on time and need your currency in a hurry, check out our Click & Collect Australian Dollars page to find a local supplier near you.

Australian Dollar rate over the past 90 days

Over the past 90 days, the Australian Dollar has increased by 0.92% from 1.716 on the 20th August to 1.7318 today. This means £750 will buy you $11.85 more today than it would have three months ago. During this period the Australian Dollar hit a high of 1.8405 on the 10th October and a low of 1.716 on the 20th August. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Australian Dollar exchange rate history page.

The Australian Dollar is the official unit of currency in the Commonwealth of Australia, the Pacific Islands, and 7 other territories including Christmas Island, Norfolk Island and the Cocos Islands. It carries the International Standard Currency Code: AUD, and is represented by the dollar sign ($) or A$ to distinguish it from other dollar currencies. The Australian Dollar is currently the 5th most-traded currency in the world; largely due to its exposure to the Asian commodities market, and is considered to be one of the minor reserve currencies.

Monetary policy is set by the Reserve Bank of Australia who are responsible for regulating cash flow and managing interest rates in an effort to ensure the Australian Dollar maintains its value. Banknotes are printed by Note Printing Australia – a subsidiary of the Reserve Bank of Australia – and coins are struck by the Royal Australian Mint based in the suburb of Deakin, Canberra.

The Aussie Dollar is one of the most popular currencies that we compare, with the typical UK traveller taking approximately £1000 (A$1,731.80 (as of Saturday 17th of November 2018) based upon data from 1st of July to 30th of September 2017, in cash with them when they go. This is significantly lower than it was three years ago when the typcial traveller took A$2024 per trip. You should try and budget about A$150 per day for your visit.

All British Citizens will need a visa for entry to Australia. There are two ways that you can apply for a visa:

  1. Go to the Australian Government Website where there is no charge for an eVisitor visa.
  2. Ask your travel agent or airline for a visa where there is usually a fee for an ETA visa (Electronic Travel Authority)

For information on all visas for entering Australia you can speak to the Australian High Commission who are based in London. In some cases you may need to allow additional time for visa applications so that you can undergo a medical examination especially if you are 75 years or older.

Working in Australia

If you are looking to work your way across Australia you should be aware that there is a common fraud using adverts claiming to help you extend a working holiday visa. These often end up with you having your visa withdrawn or invalidated. You must also ensure that you have a valid passport for the entirety of your working visa in Australia.

As a part of the entry requirements for Australia you must make sure that you have enough money for the whole of your stay in Australia and have access to emergency funds in case you run out of money. For more information on Entry requirements you can visit the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office travel information page.

Prepaid Australian Dollar Cards

Prepaid currency cards are designed specifically to be used overseas. They work the same way as a standard UK bank card, except their fees are lower when used in Australia and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
