Sensational Australia

Crikey! Need more Australian dollars for your adventure Down Under?

Australia is more than just shrimps on barbies and golden beaches (they don’t even call them shrimps, for crying out loud). Clichés aside, Australia is a country of contrasting beauty. Even though most Aussies reside in sprawling coastal cities, the world’s largest island nation is also home to harsh desert landscapes, huge mountain ranges and lush rainforests.

Having plenty of Aussie dollars up your sleeve is essential to making your most of your trip. Whether you want to head into the vast outback or discover the delights of Sydney and Melbourne, Travel Money NZ can ensure you have enough cash to experience the trip of a lifetime.

This chart shows the historic trends between the two currencies. Political and world events can cause rates to fluctuate.

Coins and notes

The Australian dollar is made up of 100 cents. It comes in $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 dollar notes, as well as 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, $1 and $2 coins. The best thing about Australian banknotes? Since they’re made from a synthetic plastic material called polymer, you can accidently put them through the wash and they won’t fall apart (well, probably… we wouldn’t suggest trying this on purpose!).

Where else the AUD is used

The AUD is not only the currency of Australia, but also of: 

  • Christmas Island
  • The Cocos (Keeling) Islands
  • Norfolk Island
  • The Pacific Island states of Kiribati, Nauru and Tuvalu.

Facts about the currency

  • The Australian dollar was introduced in 1966, replacing the previously used Australian pound.
  • The Aussie dollar was initially going to be called the "royal" (this suggestion was rejected for not being “true blue” enough).
  • Australia was the first country in the world to have their banknotes made from polymer.
  • Bronze 1c and 2c coins were removed from circulation in 1992. They were melted down and used to create the bronze medals awarded in the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
