Buy Vanuatu Kava today from Australia Kava Shop

Vanuatu is the ancestral home of kava. It is understood that Lapita people (the original settlers ) first started growing kava in a domestic capacity 3000 years ago. The Lapita people’s descendants then brought kava with them to the rest of the South Pacific.

Kava is deeply entrenched in N-Van society. It is used as a social tonic as well and used in cultural ceremonies such as weddings, meetings, births and reconciliation ceremonies. It would be considered in poor taste not to have kava available during these important occasions.
