Made up of over 17,000 islands (8,000 of which are inhabited), Indonesia is a paradise and adventure all in one. White-sand beaches on the Gili Islands, orangutan feeding in Bukit Lawang, the fun-in-the-sun retreat of Bali, trekking Mt Borneo or coming face-to-face with komodo dragons on Komodo Island… this tropical paradise offers endless possibilities. To unlock these possibilities, just swap your Aussie dollars to Indonesian rupiah before you leave home.
A melting pot of diverse cultures and languages, Indonesia is like no other country on earth. Each of its islands is unique, with different customs and natural features.

The rupiah consists of coins in Rp 50, Rp 100, Rp 200, Rp 500 and Rp 1,000 denominations, and banknotes in Rp 1,000, Rp 2,000, Rp 5,000, Rp 10,000, Rp 20,000, Rp 50,000 and Rp 100,000. Because of the big numbers, Indonesian banknotes are used more than the coins.
