When I visited the "Down under live" in London October 2008 - They were all still reeling after the Ozzie dollar hit an exchange rate of 2.6 to the pound. Looking at the exchange rates in September 2009 we've hit 1.91.
We are planning on moving to Adelaide in December and have about 6 months from our entry date to change our money (without incurring the wraith of the Ozzie taxman).
If you trace the trend of the exchange rate over the past 5 years (http://www.oanda.com/convert/fxhistory) you can see a definite downward trend.
Although, I'm really enthusiastic about my new adventure this could easily be quite a bitter pill to swallow.
Has anyone got any thoughts about this ???
