Study Tours To Vanuatu
Vanuatu Study Tours have been operating since 2005 with offices in Brisbane and Port Vila. Initially established to offer a French immersion alternative to New Caledonia, tours have extended to cover other key learning curriculum areas.
All tours are tailored to suit the needs/outcomes of the schools and the students at an affordable price.
We like to make the tours all-inclusive to have a package that includes flights, transfers, accommodation, all meals and activities. The only additional costs should be spending money for some snacks and souvenirs. We also suggest amortising the cost of a couple of teachers across the students participating – after all, they will be doing some of the day-to-day ‘work’.
Vanuatu is a fascinating and accessible destination (less than three hours from Brisbane, less than four hours from Sydney). Formerly the New Hebrides, the destination is the safe, friendly face of the South Pacific and combines curriculum areas with a lot of culture, fun and soft adventure.
While there are aspects of a third world country with some infrastructure and traditional culture, the accommodation and dining options are first world.
Vanuatu has been officially ranked as the ‘happiest nation on the planet’ and part of the journey for all students is to hopefully gain an understanding of how people can be happy without the materialism to which we are accustomed.
While the experience may be life changing for some students, it is certainly one that all students (and teachers) will have as a life memory. Hop into the navigation bar on the left and keep in mind that more than one key learning area can be incorporated into the same itinerary.
Because of limited flights, tour operators, buses for transfers etc it is a case of ‘first in, best dressed’ for available travel dates. Study Vanuatu offers personal service and local knowledge to ensure every school group has a rewarding experience and returns safely to their families, ‘tired but happy’ – we pack a lot into our itineraries!
