Other Currencies

If you’re having a tough time finding a good exchange rate for currencies other than USD, EUR, JPY and NZD, you’re better off getting it from the bank. The reason for this is that money changers don’t typically hold a large stock of uncommon currencies.

Banks in Castletown:

ANZ: Castletown Sc 34, Kings Rd, Townsville City QLD 4810

CBA: Castletown Shoppingworld, CastleTown Shoppingworld, T155 Woolcock St & Kings Rd, Hyde Park QLD 4812

Westpac: Cnr Kings Rd & Woolcock St, Shop 56; Castletown Shopping World, Hyde Park QLD 4812

NAB: Cnr Kings Rd & Woolcock St, Hyde Park QLD 4812

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 Indian Rupee (INR), an Australian bank may turn out to be the cheapest option.
