The five-dollar note has been given a colourful makeover as part of the next generation of Australian banknotes.

A top-to-bottom clear window adorned with yellow Prickly Moses wattle and a striking Eastern Spinebill bird are the main design additions revealed by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), with images of Parliament House and Queen Elizabeth II still dominating the fiver.

Circulated from September 1, a new tactile feature will help vision-impaired people distinguish between the different denominations and new security features will make it harder to counterfeit, the RBA said on Tuesday.
