About Nauru

Nauru is only 21 square kilometres and is surrounded by coral reefs.

Map of Nauru

With it's position just south of the Equator, Nauru's climate is hot and sticky, cooled slightly by occasional sea breezes.

Expect the Northeast trade winds from March to October, and plenty of rain from December to March.

You wouldn't think that many people live on such a small island; almost half of the ten-thousand population are outsiders and their nearest neighbour is Banaba Island, in the Republic of Kiribati, 300 km due east.

Nauru receives aid from the Australian government and in exchange Nauru holds and processes asylum seekers trying to enter Australia at an offshore detention centre.

Visiting Nauru

If Nauru had a capital, it would probably be Yaren District; where the Parliament House is located.

There are two hotels on Nauru, the Menen Hotel and OD-N-Aiwo Hotel. The Menen has a beachside location facing Anibare Bay (the best spot for swimming on Nauru) and the OD-N-Aiwo is located in Aiwo.

Discover Nauru:
Discover excellent deep sea fishing, scuba dive amazing ocean depths, take a tour of the island’s phosphate mines or simply experience a holiday in a world far from your own.

Weather in The Pacific:
Local weather forecasts for destinations around the Pacific region.

Getting to Nauru

Air Nauru, now known as Our Airline, flies from Brisbane on a round trip twice weekly.

From Brisbane, the Boeing 737-300 flies to Honiara, Nauru, Tarawa and Majuro.

They have an airline office at Level 3, 99 Creek Street, Brisbane.

There are also sales representatives in Honiara, Los Angeles, Majuro, Suva, Sydney and Tarawa. The Nauru office is in the Civic Centre, but you'll probably know that once you fly in to Nauru.
