We strongly advise you to open a bank account in Australia.
Most banks allow you to apply for an account before leaving your home country. Many also offer special accounts for students, with low or no transaction fees and special benefits.
There are many ways to send money to Australia, such as a Western Union Transfer or direct bank transfer. Anyone can transfer money from their overseas bank to your new Australian bank account if they have your BSB number, account number and swift code. This information is available from your new bank.
