AUD to CLP Exchange Rate and more
Travel like a local in Chile
Chile is unlike any other country in South America. Because of its natural beauty, high literacy rate, and fairly stable political situation, it can be best described as the Switzerland of the south. Chile is a paradise for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Within the country, one can find a diverse variety of landscapes including vineyards, volcanoes, deserts, beaches, lakes, glaciers and forests. Nature, culture, food and people just are few of the reasons to visit Chile. Stretching from the centre of South America right to its base, Chile is home to a vibrant melting pot of cultures that include charming alpaca herders, the rough and tumble huaso countrymen of Patagonia and the white-collar society of Santiago, all engaging and incredibly gracious in their hospitality.

The Chilean Peso?
The official currency of Chile is the Chilean Peso. It has been in circulation since 1975 and is divided into 100 centavos. The denominations for coins include 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 and 500 pesos. The denominations for banknotes are 1,000, 2,000, 5,000, 10,000 and 20,000 pesos. Watch out for the 2008 misprinted 50 peso coins with ‘Chile’ misspelled as ‘Chiie’. They’re now worth quite a bit! If only all our mistakes were as valuable.The pricier banknotes are often nicknamed after the people who appear on them, such as gabriela for Gabriela Mistral on the 5,000 peso note.
