taking cash into oz for holiday

Recommended Posts

Guest Andy

Morning all,

 

 

we are off to oz in a few weeks and i was wondering what the situation is with taking cash in and whether you have to declare it and how much you can take in for spending money.

 

Thanks for any thoughts on this :yes:

Never had many doubts me mate, but I must admit the last few days back home were really hard.

Not nice watching my kids crying saying their goodbyes:sad:

But we've been here almost 2 weeks now and things have settled down, mrs and kids seem real happy, so i'm happy.

Had a good start, great weather and so far nothing but very helpful people, they really are much more laid back here.

Guest sh7t man no way

as rob said andy you can take heaps of money--but we just take a few hundred dollars when flying--most atms do uk cards,and theres a cash machine at the airport--dont know who your flying with but its worth while getting some currency for the midway stop (cups of tea,and a bite to eat) saves you looking for a exchange rate shop,and you may get in when its closed

When we moved here, I had to tick the "money to declare" (because I was carrying a bank draft for a fair bit of money) box but all this resulted in was one question and "some of the proceeds of a house sale because we're moving here" was all they needed to hear.

 

Frankly, I wouldn't carry too much cash though...any cash card with a Visa or Mastercard logo on it will work in all the machines down here--and save the hassle of finding places to change your money (not as common down here as in the UK). Obviously safer too.

I'm good mate, work situ not special to be honest, well not in our line anyway, been slack for a while they tell me.

Having said that i'd say there were plenty of other options though, might just have to diversify for a while:biggrin:

I'm down Morphett vale at the mo, just up the road from christies beach and port nourlunga.

A lot of people Andy think that Midnight Express' is based on a fellas attempts to smuggle drugs out of Turkey.

 

Where as in reality it was based on Fred Tosser's attempt to get into Australia with $10,001,:shocked::policeman:. Don't ever believe the other stories, Fred was only freed after he promised to buy a dozen Lemons at half price.

 

But it is a lesson for us all, the Australian customs officials do not look kindly at people trying to smuggle money into Australia, and if you don't want to end up like Tosser, abide by the rules mate.:yes:

If yer do go to Victor mate URIMBIRRA wildlife parks about 5 minutes outside of Victor on the main Adelaide rd,on the right hand side if i remember correct,the kids will like it.

Jan had been dying to get close to some roos so as we were walking up to the park we seen a load in the distance,she was made up..."ooooh look,theres a load of roos" she said,then as we got closer she realised they werent behind a fence,her bottle went!

".......hell their not in a pen" :shocked:she said in fright!then she grabbed me arm tight:rolleyes:,funny how she wanted to hold on all romantic like when she thought a mob of roos was gonna kick her head in!:laugh:

She was ok in the end tho,ended up feeding them etc,good day out there boxy,worth a visit.:wubclub:

You could speak to moneycorp before you leave , set the wheels in motion , then open an Oz bank account as soon as you arrive and transfer a large sum with a reasonable rate and one off fee . Just bring a few bucks to tide you through . Are you coming to brisvegas ?
