At first glance, looks like a Volvo B10M / Volgren from Victoria, not 100% though.

Weve seen buses ex New Caledonia on Suva wharves and they weren't for Fiji, and went elswhere. Quite possibly in this case its being transhipped to a Forum line ship at Suva and that could point to Apia Samoa, or Nukualofa Tonga. Possibly other places. I will keep an eye out here in Samoa but i am doubtful as its a bit big for the roads here.

Thanks Chris,

Bhaskar is quite amenable to his pics on Flickr being enjoyed by all and all he asks of anyone is that they be duly acknowledged

This seems to have ended up in Tonga (Suva beina a transhipment port) This photo is probably it on 1MAr2017 on cruise ship duties at Nukualofa Tonga.
