Money and Tipping

Australia's currency is the Australian dollar (AUD). Bills are plastic with coins for $2 and under. Australia has eliminated the penny and cash transactions are rounded up or down to the nearest nickel. Taxes are inclusive on sticker prices of items and tipping is not common. Money exchange can be done at any bank. When changing money, make sure you get a good rate and don't pay commission. ATM's are readily available. Tipping is not customary in Australia.

Local Transportation

Trains run frequently from Fremantle to Perth Railway Station and the two zone journey only takes half an hour. Fares are $3.80 for up to 2 hours of travel or $9.30 for a daypass (Nov 2011). There is free bus service within Perth city limits. Not all ticket machines accept notes. http://www.transperth.wa.gov.au
