Whitsundays Currency Guide
The Whitsundays uses the Australian Dollar.
ATMs can only be found on the Whitsunday Coast and certain islands. At Airlie Beach, Proserpine and Cannonvale on the mainland you’ll find ATMs outside banks and at petrol stations and shopping centres. On Hamilton, Long and Daydream Islands they are located within certain resorts. If you are travelling to Australia from overseas and plan on withdrawing money or using your credit card in Australia, don't forget to notify your bank before you go for security purposes.
International travellers should convert some of their local currency into Australian Dollars before you fly to have with you when you arrive in the country. Australian Dollars are also available to purchase and exchange at Travel Money Oz stores when you land.
For large purchases, it's a good idea to bring a credit card or travel card with you on your holiday to the Whitsundays instead of carrying a lot of cash. If you don't have a credit card, consider a prepaid Multi-currency Cash Passport™, which lets you access your own money in the form of Australian Dollars from ATMs and wherever MasterCard® is accepted.
