Australian dollar conversion into american dollar

Betty anne

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

I am looking into hotels for a pre cruise stay,and was quoted in Australian dollars.

I would appreciate it,if one of our Aussie friends would enlighten me as to what $219.00au is equivalent to in american dollars.

Is it advisable to obtain Australian dollars before leaving the USA,since we will be there for a few days,prior to our cruise?

Thanks for your assistance.

Betty anne,


It is always advisable to arrive into a foreign country eg. Australia with some currency of that country. It just helps with taxis, phone calls etc. and saves you looking around for an ATM (which are readily available) before you can start enjoying yourself. If you can get the money from home all the better but if you can't, there are money exchanges at the airport, though they give you a terrible rate. Hotels are even worse so you use the ATM's when you can.

Thanks everyone,

At least I have a little insight as to the conversion rate.I also realize that the rate might be a little different by the time we arrive,but I can possibly reserve our hotel rooms at the present rate.

We will purchase some Australian dollars before leaving home.

Thanks again.
