LABASA AND WHAT YOU CAN FIND AROUND
Labasa (pronounced [lambasa]) is a town in Fiji with a population of 24,187 at the last census held in 1996.
Labasa is located in the Province of Macuata, in the north-eastern part of the island of Vanua Levu, and is the largest town on the island. The town itself is located on a delta formed by three rivers - the Wailevu, the Labasa (after which the town is named), and the Qawa. The latter two are connected by an 8-kilometer canal. The main street of Labasa prides itself for having the only set of traffic lights in the entire island. This set of lights however, are functional only intermittently.
