An untouched slice of paradise, Vanuatu is sprawled along 90 kilometres of the South Pacific region and is an archipelago of more than 80 tropical islands. With exotic coral reefs and soft white sand beaches, ancient villages and world class cuisine, Vanuatu is a truly unforgettable place to visit. The diverse culture can be seen and experienced throughout the island with enthralling performances, traditional music, and historical art. There are a myriad of ways to immerse yourself in Vanuatu’s amazing culture.
Situated near the equator, Vanuatu enjoys a year round tropical climate, meaning you can enjoy this enchanting destination whenever suits you! The warmest months are between December to April and this can also bring showers. However, most rain can be expected morning and afternoon, leaving you with a day full of sunshine.
This magical experience of culture, cuisine, and pristine landscapes will feel a world away, yet flights to the main island of Port Vila are approximately 3 hours from Brisbane, Sydney and Auckland.
