If you have used Unimoni in the past to buy some travel money, you might be wondering - why can't I find them anywhere?
Well, unfortunately, Unimoni has stopped buying or selling currency in cash. Unimoni currency exchange closed their Australian stores. They also closed their wholesale division and no longer offer customers in Australia the ability to exchange currency in cash.
Some of the store locations that Unimoni used to operate have been taken by Crown Currency. Crown is a foreign currency service similar to Unimoni with stores right across Australia. They have very good in-store service but you can't order your currency online.

In the CBD
There is a lot of choice in the city, particularly on George Street and Pitt Street. ANZ and Commonwealth Bank have foreign exchange outlets as well as more well know brands like Travelex or Travel Money Oz.
