Default monetary exchange

Hello fellowcruisers,

Need some urgent advise please:

We are unable to exchange US$ here in Bermuda into Australia $ as the bank I went to is out of that currency(obviously it is not that called for according to the bank teller but someone needed the currency right?). Where is the best place to get Australian currency? What about at the JFK terminal (7 or 8) where our flight leaves at 7:00 p.m. or would I get a better deal at LAX (we only have 2 hours to catch our flight to Australia)? Could we use a credit card to exchange US$ into Australian dollars at a redi teller machine?

We heard that to get an exchange of currency on board the ship is not cheap and we would get a better deal off the ship but I will need Australian currency BEFORE we board.

Wouldn't we need AUST$ to pay for cab fare from the airport to our hotel in Sydney as well as food that we purchase while in Australia?

Thank you for any assistance you can give us.
