Plan a Fiji Adventure With Downunder Travel
Enjoy everything from relaxation time to much adventure in Fiji! There are many sought-after experiences to be had such as river rafting, off-road buggies, parasailing, 5-star scuba diving, shark diving, golfing and more. Speaking of diving, Fiji has been dubbed as the “Soft Coral Capital of the World” for its diverse marinelife and stunning coral reefs as well as its many PADI/SSI affiliated dive operators. For the nature buff, you’ll love exploring through intact or mangrove forests, river gorges, serene and near-empty coastlines, waterfalls pouring into cool, swimmable pools and of course, the wildlife home of a variety of unique birds, mammals and reptiles!
If its culture and heritage experiences you seek, Fiji has much Indian, Chinese and European ancestry, in addition to their indigenous Fijian background. Take a storytelling tour, be part of a Cava ceremony, and incorporate every aspect of your travel itinerary focused on Fiji’s food, festivals, traditional rituals and crafts!

Our dedicated Destination Specialists travel to Fiji regularly to uncover the latest and greatest information on resorts/hotels and overall experiences.

Fiji has been a very special place to Downunder Travel for many years now. From the bustling streets of Nadi Town to the isolated gorgeous white-sand beaches with your thatched roof bungalow, and everything in between, we are able to make it all happen for you, exactly how you imagined it would be. We work alongside great contacts at the tourism board, Fiji Airways and suppliers throughout the incredible Fijian Islands.
It is believed that ancestors of the Polynesians were the first settlers of the Fijian islands, followed by the Melanesians. European settlement on the islands began in the late 1800’s, bringing over Indian labourers to work in the sugar plantations, whalers and missionaries.
The coastlines and beaches are home to coconut palms, creeping vines, soft shrubs, screw pines and frangipanis and a few species of land crabs. The reefs and surrounding waters are home to fur seal, dolphins, mantas, turtles and hundreds of species of tropical fish. Humpback whales are also seen during their yearly migration. Aside from the lush forests and secluded coastal plants, Fiji is known to produce an amazing selection of fresh fruits and vegetables including: papaya, passion fruit, bananas, mangos, pineapples, coconuts, plantains, pumpkin, sweet potato, taro, okra, sugar cane, cassava, noni and the kava plant, which is used to make the ceremonial drink, kava.
The Fijian archipelago is blessed with 300+ magnificent islands, of which only 110 are inhabited. The islands of Fiji are divided into several different regions; The two main large islands are Viti Levu and Vanau Levu, with 87% of the population calling these two islands home. The capital city of Suva is found on the largest island, Viti Levu. Three quarters of Fiji’s population live on this island’s coastal cities of Suva, Nadi and Lautoka.
