Exchanging Australian dollar for Baht

Just wondering if it is best to exchange money before you go or is it best to do while travelling in Thailand, to get a better exchange rate and are there any fees?

No, definitely not - you pretty much always get a far superior rate once in Thailand. No fees for exchanging cash as far as I know, 33 baht for travellers cheque and various fees for cash passports.
