The capital of Western Australia, Perth, has a host of experiences on offer from white sandy beaches, the fine wine regions of Swan Districts, Margaret River and Pemberton, and a diverse urban city centre which has something to offer everyone.

Whether you are visiting as a tourist or over on business, you will want to be prepared for your trip and ready with some australian dollars in your wallet.

You’ll have no problems using a topped up travel card or credit card. As always though, it’s wise to have some cash at the ready.

Ordering your foreign cash online from Travelex for delivery or if you’re in a rush then picking up the cash at a Travelex, Post Office or HSBC branch is your best bet for convenience and getting more for your currency.

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.
