AUSTRALIAN CURRENCY AND TIPPING

Australian Currency

Australian currency uses the decimal currency system.

Australian CurrencyNotes are a high quality polymer-based synthetic and come in denominations of $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100.

Coin denominations are 5 cent, 10 cent, 20 cent, 50 cent, as well as $1 and $2.

Prices under 5 cents are rounded up or down to the nearest 5 cent - that is, 3 and 4 cent totals are rounded up to nearest 5 cent, while 1 and 2 cent totals are rounded down to nearest 5 cent denomination.

For example - 12 cents would be rounded down to 10 cents. 14 cents would be rounded up to 15 cents.
