The main events will take place between 23 and 26 August under the theme “Discover Vanuatu, make new friends, share laughter.” Organizers hope the publicity generated by this year’s Toktok will boost tourism at a time when it is greatly needed and much of the restoration work following Cyclone Pam has been completed.

So intense and all these little fern shadows make me happy! This guy and his friends jumped out of the bushes and scared our little group. I'm embarrassed to say I just froze and closed my eyes… Like if I can't see it it isn't happening!! Haha! What a great cultural experience!! @vanuatuislands #discovervanuatu

I honestly didn't think you were able to stand on the edge of an active volcano, and I had no idea it was possible to do it so close to home In Sydney. Yesterday I visited Mount Yasur on Tanna Island, part of @vanuatuislands. I'll never forget looking down into the crater and seeing a molten pool of lava bubbling below. It is truly one of the most incredible things I've ever done. It was also one of the most exhilarating photographic shoots of my life. I'm still buzzing about it. Thanks to @matjoez for helping me with this shot. 🌋👌#discovervanuatu
