Currency

The currency used in Western Australia is the Australian dollar (AUD). When you arrive in Perth, one of the first things you should do is change your foreign currency or travelers' cheques into Australian dollars. You can do this at the airport, at currency exchange points in the city centre and at most banks.

If you have a bank card from your country, you should be able to use it to withdraw Australian dollars at most automatic teller machines (ATMs).
