The 3 Best Places to Exchange Currency in Fremantle
In Fremantle, it’s easy to get a cappuccino or a beer but the places to exchange currency are harder to find.

- Travel Money Oz

Travel Cards, Money Transfers and Other Situations
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.
All four big banks are in Fremantle:
ANZ: 5 Queen Street
CBA: 3 Queen Street
Westpac: 9 Queen Street
NAB: 3 Queen Street
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 like the Hong Kong Dollar (HKD), an Australian bank may turn out to be the cheapest option.
Can I send money overseas from anywhere in Fremantle?
While you have the option to send money overseas at a bank or money changer, it usually isn’t the best way to transfer money.
Since there are many ways for you to send your money overseas, we suggest doing your research online before deciding what is right for you.
Can I buy a Travel Money Card in Fremantle?
You can buy a travel money card over the counter at most banks or money changers. While buying the travel money card on the spot is seemingly convenient, your name would not be on it. Another option is to order and load your card online and arrange a time and place to pick it up.
