Australian dollar currency rates are little bit slower than American dollar. At that time $1 USD = $1.30 AUD. There are  ATM’s everywhere to withdraw money from. And if you need to exchange money, you will find banks to do it with.

Australian dollar bills always look like they are new. In all the countries that I have visited so far, it’s my favorite currency. When you touch the bills, they look great and not very old like in the other countries.
