Opening a joint bank account before moving

Australia : British Expat Discussion Forum - britishexpats.com
Spouse and I are heading down under soon (official work start date is technically September 4th but none of the visa paperwork has been submitted yet so... yeah, "Soon"). I've spied a few banks who let you open accounts before you go, but I can't figure out how to open a joint one. My tentative bank of choice, Westpac, just kind of sends you in circles implying that you need to have an Aus residential address if you try opening a joint account in advance. Will the best thing to do here be open an individual account in the primary visa holder's name for now then add the secondary person to it once we get down there?
