Australian High Commission
Port Vila


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

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news.


As Pacific neighbours, Australia and Vanuatu share a strong bilateral relationship. Australia supported Vanuatu’s independence in 1980 and remains one of its closest and biggest development partners today. We also share strong people-to-people links across every sector of our communities including our churches, workforces, sports and cultures.


Australia is proud to be a major partner of Vanuatu.  Just as we stood with Vanuatu before Independence – and advocated for that independence at the United Nations – so too are we proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with it now.

We look forward to sharing more with you in 2022.​




Australian High Commissioner, Her Excellency Ms Heidi Bootle joined the Hon Prime Minister Bob Loughman, Deputy Prime Minister Ishmael Kalsakau, Ministers and other members of Vanuatu's Parliament at Vanuatu Police Force Cook Barracks to see the progress of works delivered under the Cook and Tiroas Barracks Redevelopment.
