Rather like Darwin, it may take a few days to become acclimatised to the weather in Fiji, so please consider making a week of it and seeing some other attractions or just relax.

So get your leis out of the cupboard and iron your grass skirts & book the week ahead in your calendars for next year and we look forward to providing an exciting event and renewing friendships with you all.
