Frequently Asked Questions

Students will stay at the Eco-Lodge Base during this week. The Eco-Lodge is situated on 14 acres of land about 45 minutes drive from the town of Nadi. The base is nestled in the rolling hills here and has ocean views.

The Eco-Lodge consists of a main house with kitchen and activity space, larger dorm rooms, shower/toilet blocks and several small houses that sleep eight to sixteen students on bunk-beds. Students share rooms with others of the same gender. Each smaller house has an attached bathroom with solar powered hot water showers, sinks, and flush toilets. There is an infinity-edge swimming pool, soccer field, small weights room, and pool table.

The water is safe to drink at the Eco-Lodge. Bottled water is available for purchase from a snack bar at the Eco-Lodge if preferred.

The Eco-Lodge has its own resident chef and team of cooking staff. Students will eat a combination of local Fijian dishes and more western-style dishes. Breakfasts typically include cereal, breads, eggs, crackers, and fruit. Lunches and dinners range from traditional Fijian lovo feasts of chicken, cassava, and dalo (similar to taro) to barbeques, pastas, stir fries, curries, salads, and vegetables. Vegetarians can easily be catered for, and most dietary restrictions can be accommodated.

Reception may be limited at the Eco-lodge so we recommend that a local sim card be purchased in Fiji. Ensure that mobile phones have been unlocked before leaving Australia.
