Holiday season means heavier than usual traffic expected on roads in and around Sydney Airport. Plan your journey.
Fiji is an exotic tropical paradise that will leave a special and lasting impression on all visitors. Only 4 hours flight from Sydney you’ll discover the 33 islands making up the Republic of Fiji. Scattered across Melanesia in the South Pacific Ocean, Fiji is a family-friendly beach getaway right at Australia’s doorstep. White sand, clear waters, resorts and island seclusion make Fiji a popular couple, family or wedding destination.
The Coral Coast has long been a favourite Fiji destination and is one of the most sought-after tourist stretches, beginning 15km south of Nadi. White sand beaches cover the coastline between Nadi and Suva, the perfect setting for large and small accommodation options. Discover one of the world’s largest ‘fringing’ coral reefs, surrounded by rainforests, mangroves and mountainous peaks. Diving and snorkelling are unsurprisingly some of the more popular activities, while the drive from Nadi to the Coral Coast is spectacular in itself.
An idyllic luxury escape, Denarau Island is a resort-lover’s dream. A private island located 10km west of Nadi Airport, here you’ll discover the pools, spas and sands that make Fiji a coveted resort destination. The marina and port areas offer shopping and restaurant precincts, but many tourists choose to stay within their chosen accommodation and enjoy pool-side relaxation. Port Denarau Marina is the gateway to the beautiful Mamanuca and Yasawa islands.
A group of about 20 islands surrounded by a large lagoon, the Mamanuca Islands are a popular tourist destination accessible by boat from Port Denarau. Photogenic white sand, clear waters and warm temperatures make these islands a preferred getaway for couples and honeymooners. If you think the islands look a little familiar, perhaps it’s because the 2000 Tom Hank hit ‘Castaway’ was filmed here. Water activities, village exploration and resort relaxation are some of the islands’ key attractions.

Located about 64 kilometres north of the main island Viti Levu, Vanua Levu has been described as an ideal place to visit ‘The Real Fiji’ as it’s unlike the other resort-filled islands. The main town of Savusavu is renowned for diving and water-based activities. Ideal for couples and solo travellers, this island provides a more secluded escape, with plenty of transport options to the other islands
