Several will now let you open an account from UK but only HSBC has branches in UK and Australia. I use HSBC and can go on line and call up all my UK, Australian and other accounts all on the one page. I can also transfer money online with a couple of clicks. Not advised for larger sums because there exchange rates are no where near those of currency dealers. I notice Westpac in particular are heavily advertising the fact they will open accounts in advance of arrival.
