Australian High Commission
Port Vila


Welcome to the official website of the Australian High Commission in Port Vila, Vanuatu.

Australia and Vanuatu share a deep and longstanding partnership that extends from before Vanuatu’s Independence to today.  We share a region, we share an ocean, and we share a future.  Our Governments and communities work together every day to make that future more peaceful, prosperous and resilient.

Our partnership is underpinned by close friendships and family ties: from our shared Melanesian cultural links to the bonds between scholars, athletes, seasonal workers, tourists, officials, community leaders and volunteers that have formed from decades of close cooperation and exchange.


Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to see our partnership in action.
