Flying to Fiji from Australia
The main island of Fiji, Viti Levu, is home to two airports—Nadi (NAN) and Suva (SUV). Nadi is located on the western side of the island and is Fiji’s main international airport. Suva is located on the eastern side of Viti Levu and is much smaller than Nadi. While Sydney has the occasional direct flight to Suva, almost all flights from Australia to Fiji connect through Nadi. When you book package holidays to Fiji with Webjet, your flights will be included in your rate.
Several airlines fly between Australia and Fiji, including Qantas, Fiji Airways, Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Jetstar. You can catch a direct flight to Fiji from Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. While other airports don’t offer direct flights, you can fly from another city, such as Perth, Adelaide, Hobart, or Cairns with a short stopover. You can arrive to Fiji in less than 4 hours from both Sydney and Brisbane, 5 hours from Melbourne, and only 9 hours from Perth, including stopover.

Things to do on Fiji Holidays
Snorkel or Scuba Dive
Fiji is surrounded by some of the most beautiful coral reefs in the world. And of course the best way to experience them is to go snorkelling or scuba diving. This will give you the opportunity to see colourful coral and a variety of fish up close and in their natural habitat. Most Fijian beaches have beautiful reefs off the coast, but the absolute best places to snorkel or scuba dive are the Namena Marine Reserve, Somosomo Strait where you’ll find the Rainbow Reef, and the Great Astrolabe Reef.
Go for a Hike
Head inland from Fiji’s beaches and you’ll find lush forests, waterfalls, and mountains. Going for a hike is the perfect way to experience a different side of the country on holiday packages to Fiji. To see lots of beautiful waterfalls, try out the Bouma National Heritage Park. The park makes up more than a third of Taveuni—the third-largest island in Fiji. For a challenging hike with an amazing view over Fiji, visit Des Voeux Peak. Once you’ve reached the summit, you’ll be rewarded with a view over several islands including Taveuni and Vanua Levu. From there, you can continue your hike to Lake Tagimaucia—a crater lake sitting 823 metres above sea level.
Try Out Some Water Sports
As a series of tropical islands, one of the top things to do during package holidays to Fiji is to get out on the water and get active. Some popular water sports to try in Fiji are paddle boarding, kayaking, and canoeing. With the clear ocean water, you’ll be able to see colourful fish and coral below you and get some beautiful views of the islands. If you’re an adrenaline junkie, you could also rent a jet ski for a high speed trip through the water.
Relax on the Beach
You can’t take Fiji holidays without spending some time at the beach. And with 333 islands, there are a lot of beautiful beaches to choose from! Many hotels and resorts have their own private beaches, and there are a number of private islands. There are even some private islands you can visit for the day when you reserve a spot in advance. Some of the top non-private beaches to have on your radar while visiting Fiji are Liku Beach, Natadola Beach, Yasawa Island Beach, and the beaches of Mana Island. All of these beaches feature soft white sand, bright blue water, and lots of beautiful palm trees.
Go Zip Lining
Fiji is a country full of adventure sports. Its beautiful landscape and lush forests make it the perfect place to go zip lining. Many tour operators have zip lining tours that take you through the Fijian jungle with views of waterfalls and the ocean. Zip lining is the perfect way to get your adrenaline going between relaxing island activities.
Participate in Fijian Traditions
The best way to experience the culture of Fiji is by meeting locals and participating in some traditional Fijian ceremonies. Many small villages love welcoming tourists and teaching them about their island traditions. Kava ceremonies are popular ones to join in on and are focused around a Fijian drink made from kava root that tastes like an earthy tea. Another exciting Fijian tradition is the lovo. A lovo is the Fijian version of a barbecue where the food is wrapped in banana leaves and cooked over hot rocks.
Best time to book Fiji Holiday Packages
With warm temperatures all year long, there isn’t a bad time to book holiday packages to Fiji. Being in the tropics, Fiji can be prone to some tropical storms. Rain is especially common from January to March but, even then, storms tend to pass quickly. It can be raining one minute and bright and sunny ten minutes later.
Fiji’s high season lasts from July to September. During this time, Fiji is busier and prices for hotels increase to match the demand. For a quieter experience, consider visiting Fiji at the beginning or end of high season in May, June, or October. Weather is perfect during this time with little rain and a serene Fijian atmosphere.
