How to Buy Foreign Exchange: Currency in Cash

ANZ sells currency from Foreign Exchange Centres, Branches and ATM’s. If you are already an ANZ customer, you can also get currency by ordering it online through internet banking or via Phone Banking.

If you are in a rush, use a Foreign Exchange Centre or an ATM. Local ANZ branches often hold a limited stock of the most popular currencies. This means that in a lot of cases, you have to order the currency in which can take a few days, in which time the exchange rate can move considerably. Unfortunately, ordering it from internet banking or phone banking isn’t much quicker.


The Foreign Exchange Centres are useful but are limited to the CBD of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth along with the airports in Sydney and Melbourne. The Foreign Currency ATM’s are even more limited with 3 in Melbourne, 1 at Sydney Airport and 1 at Adelaide airport.
