North Efate is the underdog of Efate. With so many fantastic natural attractions and local products in the area, North Efate is a truly a hidden paradise waiting to be discovered. The area is home to marine conversations, beamins with wildlife, traditional custom villages and adventure at every turn.
Visitors to Efate are met with an array of Vanuatu experiences offered to them by their booking providers but so often leave with a very diverse opinion of the Island and this has a huge impact on their readiness to return back to the country so quickly. Through promoting authentic outer island products and attractions, we hope to grow both local and tourist minds by offering them unforgettable experiences and memories about Vanuatu they will cherish forever and tell all of their friends about!
North Efate is ready for tourism! Lets spread the word and highlight Efate’s true real island gems! This will not only give tourists a ‘real Vanuatu experience’, it will also give all players a taste of Vanuatu traditions & customs, positively impacting on the local communities, building small local businesses and embedding the values and heritage of the Vanuatu spirit.

WHAT IS A CAR RALLY?
It's good old fashioned fun, and the best way to discover an area!
Your team then needs to drive from one clue to another (hidden stops located around the island of Efate) looking for the answer to each question. The more people you have the easier it is to work out the answers. Whether you get them all or not, it is a lot of fun and the novelty prize categories ensure everyone is in the running to win something regardless of how accurate the answers actually are.
Challenges: At each stop there is also an optional challenge, the more challenges you complete, the most race passes you will collect, giving you a great chance of winning the major prize. Each challenge is designed to cater for all levels of fitness, age & abilities and they may be a little quirky but it’s all made to have fun!
All children get their own question sheets so they can join in too and go into the draw to win one of 10 junior awards.
Each clue gets an allocated amount of points for a right answer. The couple, group, corporate team and family competitor with the most race passes & points wins a prize (1st, 2nd, 3rd). There are bonus points allocated for extra items found on the course, style points for best dressed team and best presented car, just to name a few. There are a range of prizes and trophies up for grabs and full bragging rights for those who do well.
