— words by Roderick Eime
For Australians, Fiji presents the tropical island destination of our dreams. Warm, balmy days and nights, crystal clear water, beautiful corals and perfect sandy beaches fringed by coconut palms straight out of our imagination.
Fiji and Australia have enjoyed a robust relationship for decades that has withstood the political ructions that often go on around the halls of power. We’re quick to respond when the now regular cyclones tear through the islands and above all, the bond between Australian and Fijian people is solid as a rock.
Australians make up the biggest number of tourist arrivals by far, with that number expected to approach 400,000 in 2016. While most spend their time on the resort strip on Denarau Island, just down the road from the airport, plenty head out to the islands too. There are more than 300 of them, with barely one third inhabited. Exclusive Fiji resorts often occupy an entire island like in the Mamanuca and Yasawa group to the east of the main island, Viti Levu.
We cruise there, laze there, dance there and, most important of all, relax there. And with the vast range of resorts, hotels and activities for couples, solos and families, there’s plenty to keep sunseeking Aussies coming back again and again.
