STEP 02 – Open an Australian Bank Account

You can open your bank account prior to arriving at Jolly Swagman Backpackers Sydney, which means you’ll have the facility to transfer funds to Australia before leaving your home country. We highly recommend using the Commonwealth Bank of Australia which is the largest bank – it has the most branches and ATMs all around Australia.

If you do want to open an account it is very easy:

Please open this form: Commonwealth Bank Australia Download Application

  • Fill in all the required details*
  • Print and Sign the form where required (your signature is required)
  • Fax or Scan and email to the contact details provided on the form
  • The account will be opened within 48 hours and the account details email to you

**During your application, you will be required to supply an address of residence in Australia for delivery of your bank card, account details, PIN number etc

We are happy for you to use the Jolly Swagman Hostel Sydney address for this purpose:

27 Orwell Street
Potts Point
Sydney NSW

If you have any questions or problems with your bank account please contact us
