Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Transfer to Paypal in Australia

My dad has a UK Paypal account, and when Im travelling he may want to send me cash, I have a UK paypal account myself.
Would I be able to set the UK paypal account to have money transfer into a Australian Bank Account? or would I need an Australian paypal account?

Are there charges for doing this?

Because I know if you send money via paypal as a personal payment, you do not get charged.
Would this be the same if it was UK to Oz Paypal account etc?

Seems to me the simplest way would be to just use your debit card from your UK bank to access cash in Australia (ATM). Paypal just transfers funds from one account to another - you don't need an Australian bank account. If you'll be down under for an extended period, that's different.

Funds transferred by Paypal domestically to not incur a charge for me in the States - I'm assuming it works the same way in the UK.
