Vanuatu is an island country located in the South Pacific Ocean. The archipelago, which is of volcanic origin, is 1,750 km (1,090 mi) east of northern Australia and 540 km northeast of New Caledonia. The first Europeans to visit the islands were a Spanish expedition in 1606. In the 1880s, France and the United Kingdom claimed parts of the archipelago. An independence movement arose in the 1970s, and the Republic of Vanuatu was founded in 1980.
