Money
You should not carry too much cash on you when you travel here.  That said, you are not going to be able to use a credit card or write a check when you are visiting Australia.  A sensible way to make sure that you have enough money is to get travelers checks.  This is a way that you will be able to get what you need and then some and also have the added security of knowing that you are covered if they are lost or stolen. Australian currency is decimal with the dollar as the basic unit.  There are exchange shops where you can cash in and get the local currency that you will need.

Climate

Customs
Laws prohibit any drugs, firearms, or any other foreign objects.  They have these laws to protect the wildlife and citizens of their country.  Unlike some foreign countries, there is not limit on the amount of Australian cash that may be brought into or taken out of Australia.
 
Tipping
Unlike the United States, tipping is not expected and services charges are not automatically added to hotel and restaurants.  For any special services, a tip of ten percent is good.  Taxi drivers do not expect a tip, but will appreciate anything that is offered to them. Feel free to tip when you feel you’ve had great service.

Information centers
