Money and Tipping

Canada's currency is the Canadian Dollar (CAD). Coins are used for denomination $2 and under. Canada uses polymer plastic notes similar to the notes used in Australia. The penny was eliminated in 2013. US dollars are widely accepted though you may get a poor exchange rate and your change back in Canadian money. When dining in restaurants, tips between 15-20% are expected since restaurant workers typically make minimum wage. Taxi drivers should be tipped the same. Mastercard and Visa credit cards are widely accepted.

Local Transportation

Sydney is very small and walkable. You will need to rent a car, take a taxi or tour to visit sites further out. Uber and Lyft are currently unavailable (July 2022).
