Burns Philp was a major shipping line and acted as merchants and agents in the Pacific Islands, as well as providing a mail service and carrying tourists to various Pacific locations, including the New Hebrides (now Vanuatu). In later years, Burns Philp also acquired land and developed plantations throughout the Pacific region. The images below are just a sample of the materials relating to Vanuatu in the Burns Philp deposits in the archives.
