Introducing The Australs

The islands here have had less of a history with Europeans and less influx from the outside world, so have kept their culture and delicious local-style cuisine alive. Pandanus weaving is still a mainstay and these crafted items are greatly sought after by islanders in other archipelagos. The climate means that peaches and carrots grow alongside banana trees and vast taro plantations.
