PayPal and Bank Accounts

If I convert money in my PayPal account into a different currency, and then withdraw it into my bank account, will it go into my bank account as AUD or the currency I just changed it over to? If it goes in as AUD will it be switched back to the day I withdraw it's exchange rate or just back to the original amount it was?

Not sure you would be able to convert your PayPal currency to a different currency, but if you did it would convert back to Australian currency if you were to then put it back into your Australian bank account
You shouldn't need to convert your PayPal money into a different currency though as its converted automatically if you buy something from overseas in a different currency.
