About Vanuatu

Located only 2,250 kilometres north east of Sydney, Australia, and just north of French territory New Caledonia, Vanuatu is the longest established offshore centre in the Pacific. A former Anglo-French condominium known as New Hebrides, the country has been an independent democratic Republic since July 30th, 1980.

With its sub-tropical climate, some 80 islands scattered in a Y shape over 1,000 kilometres, traditional Melanesian customs and dual English and French influence inherited from pre-independence days, Vanuatu offers an easy and attractive lifestyle in a unique land of contrasts.
