    I'm a fellow user.

    Automatic downloads cannot be done with Australian banks. None of them support direct connect. They all provide downloadable transaction files from their Internet banking sites - usually in QIF or CSV formats these can be imported into Moneydance.

    For example Westpac has published a FAQ on how to do it:

    On the Moneydance side they have a knowledge base article:
