Levuka Historical Port Town, Fiji


Postcard
The South Pacific nation of Fiji is comprised of 322 islands. About 100 are inhabited. Levuka is a town on the eastern coast of the Fijian island of Ovalau, a lush vulcanic Island with a population of about 8,000. Farming and fishing are the main source of income. Levuka was formerly the Capital of Fiji (today Suva is).
