Where best to exchange AUD to USD in Sydney?

mhejmhej SydneyTotal Reaction Points: 38Member
Hi Guys! I live in Sydney currently, particularly in Burwood, Inner West. I work in the city from Monday to Friday. I need to exchange my AUD to USD for loan purposes. Do any of the oldtimers here have any suggestions where I can get the best rate for my AUD to USD? Or better yet, san ako pwede magpa exchange ng walang hidden charges or service fees? Thanks!
