Bank

If you are looking for a rare currency, using a bank will get you a better exchange rate. Because certain currencies do not make it around as often as others, money changers tend to avoid stocking up. Hence, it can be more expensive to obtain. In Australia, common currencies are USD, EUR, JPY and NZD. If you are getting anything other than those currencies, head to the bank.
