World-renowned travel photographer David Kirkland celebrates the joy and vibrancy of life on Vanuatu in these stunning portraits and photographs.
Halo! Welcome to Vanuatu
From the active volcanoes of Tanna, surrounded by fields of ash, to the coral reefs swarming with some of the most incredible marine life on the planet, Vanuatu is an adventurer’s paradise. It’s ancient traditions and famous blue swimming holes are a photographer’s dream, and the people are considered some of the happiest in the world.
Pentecost Island is home to the infamous Nangol land-diving ceremony, but this beautiful island also has plenty more natural beauty and adventures to offer curious travellers.
Only a few hours on a plane and you can touch down in a piece of paradise where the blue holes, beaches and people are beautifully unaffected by tourism.
Turtles, stunning volcanic reefs, tranquil islands and wonderlands in wrecks. Diving in Vanuatu is a year-round affair.
The island of Tanna is one of the most peaceful, underdeveloped islands in the Pacific. Here, time really has stood still.
Vanuatu is only a three-hour plane journey from Australia, and yet it feels completely off the grid.
Thanks to its multi-cultural Melanesian, French, Spanish, Polynesian, and Asian heritage, Vanuatu is a foodie paradise.
