Vanuatu has been a popular holiday destination for Australians for a long time, and it’s easy to see why. Only a short few hours from our east coast, Vanuatu offers stunning natural landscapes and a rich culture. The locals are friendly and welcoming, and the beaches even more so. Port Vila is found on the main island, Efate Island, which is home to many alluring resorts and hotels. Reaching the nation’s other paradisiacal islands is easy with options like buses, flights or chartered cruises available.
The new Melbourne – Port Vila route is currently the only direct service between Melbourne and Vanuatu.
