Bank

Banks are not typically not the first place people would think when it comes to good exchange rates. However, banks generally have better exchange rates for uncommon currencies than money changers. Their stock for a larger range of currencies allow them to sell at a lower rate. So if you’re looking for currencies other than USD, EUR, JPY and NZD, get it from the bank.

ANZ: Highpoint, Shop 2041 Highpoint Shopping Centre, 120 Rosamond Rd, Maribyrnong VIC 3032
