The tropical paradise of Fiji presents travellers with over 300 islands to choose from and explore. Its tropical climate and picture-perfect beaches attract honeymooners, families and groups alike. Away from the beaches, you can experience authentic Fijian culture, hiking, diving and all manner of adventure and water-based activities.

Fiji's major gateway is the international airport in Nadi, on the west coast of the main island, Viti Levu. It's less than a four-hour flight from Australia’s major east coast airports and with accommodation near the airport you can even make a weekend break happen.
