Where to exchange money in Chinatown Sydney

Chinatown Sydney has a range of different money changers. This is the best way to get popular currency quickly.

You can save on currency exchange even through a bank. Most people try to avoid using a bank, but they are the best option for uncommon or exotic currencies. Due to the larger stocks and variety of currencies, bank exchange rates will be comparatively better than money changers.

Most banks don't hold currency in each branch. So if you do want to use your bank to buy currency, you'll need to order it online and pick it up from the local branch.
