I am moving to Perth in July and want to set up a bank account as soon as I get there. I need some advice.

1. Can I set up an account when I have not yet got a Job.

2. What is he best current account to open in WA?

3. Is it easy to transfer money across from a UK account into a Australian account??

Thanks.

Westpac, Bankwest & NAB are probably the top 3 there.

Its always good to open A/C & transfer before u land.

Not sure if this is the best site for comparison, but have a look here

Yes you can

2. What is he best current account to open in WA?

I've opened NAB Classic Banking Account and to me its the best one with no account maintenance fee..

3. Is it easy to transfer money across from a UK account into a Australian account??

It is very easy...need to check Currency Conversion and Exchange Rates | Transfer Money with OzForex

Thanks.
