Best Travel Money Exchange Rates in Brisbane CBD

In this article we show you how to save money if you find yourself looking for Foreign Cash in the Brisbane CBD.


The centre of Brisbane offers a unique combination of culture and lifestyle, you can catch some modern art at GOMA, be amazed by the Muttaburrasaurus dinosaur bones at the Queensland museum and follow this up with a swim at South Bank Streets Beach.

You may also be in the Brisbane CBD doing some last minute shopping; picking up a backpack for an overseas trip or perhaps ducking out of work to grab some foreign cash for a business trip. Before you hit the streets you are better off ordering your foreign cash online from Travelex and then picking up the cash at a Travelex, Post Office or HSBC branch.

You will find that you can save a couple of percent on the exchange rate margin by pre-ordering your cash. Our Review of Auspost exchange rates includes the following table that shows you an example of how much you can save.
