The Best Foreign Currency Places in Bunbury

Here are a variety of places you can go to get the best currency exchange rate to buy travel money in Bunbury. Whether you use a bank or money changer, the most cost-effective option largely depends on how much you are looking to exchange.

Currency Exchange in Bunbury

Online

This is usually the cheapest way to buy currency, but you need some time. You can choose where to pick the order up from or get it home delivered.

Home or Office Delivery

  • You can pay by Bpay or bank transfer.
  • It takes up to 7 days depending on your location.
  • Choose your cash denominations like small, medium, large or mixed
  • Foreign Xchange usually has better exchange rates than Travelex.

Money Changers

This is the best way to get currency quickly. You will find them in major shopping centres and towns.

Money Tips

  • The exchange rates are better in your CBD. So it can be worth going there if you're exchanging more than $2,000
  • Always ask for a better rate. We've found you can often get a better deal just by asking, particularly if you're buying more than $100

Bunbury and its range of different money changers:

Travel Money Oz: Tenancy 9A, Blair Street, Bunbury Centrepoint Shopping Centre
Travelex: Inside Bunbury Post Shop at 153-155 Victoria Street Bunbury 6230

Bank

If you need foreign exchange for less common currencies like Thai Baht (THB) or Indonesian Rupiah (IDR), these stores can sometimes hold a limited stock and their exchange rates are less competitive. Contrary to popular belief, using an Australian bank to buy your overseas holiday cash isn’t always the most expensive option. In fact, it can sometimes be the cheapest way to buy it.

The banks available in Parramatta:

ANZ: 219 Church Street or at the mall

CBA: Corner of George and Church Street or shop 3050 at the mall

Westpac: Corner of George and Church Street or 126 Church Street

NAB: 28 George Street or at the mall

Bank of Queensland: 354 Church Street

Bendigo Bank: 198 Church Street

Bankwest and St George are also located in the shopping mall

To work out if a bank is the cheapest way to buy your currency, make sure you compare exchange rates.

Our Verdict: When buying less common currencies such as Omani Rial (OMR), an Australian bank may turn out to be the cheapest option.

Can I buy a Travel Money Card in Bunbury?
