Dear Traveller, it is totally irrelevant which currency you take as the exchange rate is fixed in both Banks and Exchange offices. You should change currency in official places.
YOU can only pay with Croatian money /KUNA/ in Croatia, it is strictly forbidden to accept foreign currency to shops, restaurants etc., the only place you can use Eur is to pay TOLL on highway. Have fun!

.....and take your ATM card (inform your bank where you are going)
- it is foolish to travel with substantial sums of any currency.

thanks for advice. I want to avoid changing currency twice from $A to euro to kuna and want to know if $A will be accepted by croatian banks

You'll have no problem.

Or if you want peace of mind, exchange it at home before you travel. At worst it'll take a currency exchange a few days to order some kuna in.
