Capital city of the week: Avarua

Avarua means "two harbours" in English


It is the capital of a country which is made up of a number of islands.

Raw fish is a normal part of Avaruan's diet

Church in Avarua

Nearly everything in Avarua is closed on Sunday's – except the churches, of course

Flame tree Avarua

And you can see lovely trees like this in Avarua.
