How to create an AUD quote if opportunity is in USD? I have setup multicurrency to make this happen and wants to use the standard quote functionality of SF.
Any help is appreciated.

You are swimming against the tide here. As @sfdcfox says, OOB SFDC currency works in a certain way and for good reason as Quote line items can be sync'd to Opportunity line items. Normally, one has a pricebook defined in all transactable currencies.
Now, if you want to still go ahead:
Oppo.Amountin the Oppo currency, you'll need to build your own quote -> Oppo sync and currency conversion logic.
Per the documentation:
Defaulted on create, Filter, Restricted picklist
Available only for organizations with the multicurrency feature enabled. Contains the ISO code for any currency allowed by the organization.
If the organization has multicurrency and a Pricebook2Id specified on the quote, then the currency value of this field must match the currency of the PricebookEntry objects that are associated with any quote line items it has.
This value is copied from the related Opportunity and can't be changed.
Note that the Currency must be the same as the opportunity, and the PriceBook2Id must also match that currency.
This is all baked in to the standard quote system. You won't be able to subvert multi-currency in the way you'd like.
