Adventure. Animals. Freedom to roam. Cascade waterfalls. Pretty much everything a kid could want? Yep – you can find it all at Eden on the River.

Port Vila’s newest attraction and magnet for kids is set on the banks of the Rentapau River, about 20 minutes from Vanuatu’s capital. Suitable for young’uns and grown ups, guests strap in for adventure, taking on suspension bridges across the glorious cascading Rentapau River. Finish the bridge walk with a short flying fox ride and the kids are ready for a quick bite to eat of local fruit and fresh juice followed by a fun farm tour. Pet the resident sheep, cattle, pigs, chickens and horses. Meet an iguana, flying fox and lorikeet. All are friendly and all kid-friendly.

For mum and dad, take a tour of the Ernst family’s beautiful gardens at Eden.  Lovingly tended over many years, our gardening writer Carolyn Ernst has put thousands of hours into collecting rare and beautiful tropical plants, fruit trees and exquisite orchids. The kids may even enjoy seeing how fruits and nuts are grown and play ‘guess that fruit’.
