Best Currency Exchange Rates on the Gold Coast

In this article we show you how to save money if you find yourself looking for Foreign Cash on the Gold Coast.


The famed Gold Coast of Australia offers stunning beaches along Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, a plethora of international standard restaurants, and a unique opportunity to wonder through the unchanged hinterland of Gondwana rainforests.

You may also be on the Gold Coast 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. Whatever the reason for your trip to the Gold Coast, 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.
