Colo-I-Suva Forest Park

Take a dip in one of the natural swimming pools, follow a nature trail and keep your ears and eyes ready to spot the numerous birds that inhabit this park.

Reviewed By Tim H - Mandurah, Australia

What a fantastic spot this was, we did a tour that our travel agent suggested and we would have never thought of (thanks Champagne Travel) and it didn't disappoint. Was very hot but cooler under the magic forest and you pass streams, Waterfalls in an untouched jungle. Lots of police and security about and felt very safe. Wonderful swim at the end in a deep cool lagoon on a tree swinging rope ! Limited facilities and you can get to the pool by driving closer or smaller your coaches drop off much nearer. But hike was worth it !

Fiji Museum

Archaeological findings dating back 3500 years as well as cultural objects reflecting Fiji's inhabitants during the past 100 years are housed in the oldest museum in the South Pacific.

Reviewed By yuanmuziye - Shanghai, China

this is a very small museum and not very well organized in profile, introduction is poor. you’d better read Fiji history book to get better knowledge. To pay 10FJD entrance, i don’t think it’s worth. But the Garden is quite beautiful, you can walk around...MoreThank you for your comment.Please visit the Fiji Museum virtual museum for more information about the artifacts if you feel the caption is not enough.

Suva Municipal Market

Immerse yourself in the festive, friendly atmosphere of this wonderful street market, where you'll find every tropical fruit and vegetable imaginable.

Reviewed By John S - Wellington, New Zealand

Suva market is a good example of a paciific island market places lots of fruit and veges for sale. Our favourite is the ready to eat pineapple just $1 for a ripe juicey piece of fruit. A lot of the stalls have the similar produce for sale but it is a cheerful, busy centre, full of friendly people. We also enjoyed the flowers on the front corner (outside).

Albert Park

This park was made famous when Charles Kingsford-Smith made an emergency landing here on his 1928 trans-Pacific flight.

Reviewed By tigger2594 - Toowoomba, Australia

This Is a well maintained park with rest rooms, cost 50 cents with a small
Water feature and garden area.
We arrived on a Sunday and there were several teachers and students doing Sunday school work but they smiled and were polite.
Parking parallel to the park is available.
Well maintained but the rest rooms were handy

Government Buildings - Parliament

These impressive, orange-colored government buildings were modeled after traditional Fijian thatched huts, and the complex is open to visitors.

Reviewed By Kashyapa W

This is one of the most important and historic buildings in Fiji. Hosts the Parliament, High Court & Appellate Courts and many Government Offices. Inside the courtrooms and the Parliament one would admire the grand architecture. Not a major tourist attraction as mostly it is official business. Must know the way around to visit, otherwise you would barge in whilst courts in progress.

21K Gallery

21K is Suva's newest art gallery selling original contemporary work by five of Fiji's established artists; William Bakalevu, Mason James Lee, Anare Somumu, Waqa Vuidreketi and Josua Toganivalu.

Reviewed By planejanenz - NZ

When I lived in Suva I always lamented the lack of a gallery, having seen so many beautiful paintings and pieces in houses and offices. So Gallery 21K was a big plus on my recent return trip. This is quality, interesting art. And in a beautiful cottage near town. It's opened recently with 5 permanent artists, huge range of styles. They are planning regular guest Exhibitions so keep an eye out whether local or visiting. Definitely where a departing expat will find their best personal souvenir of sophisticated Fiji art.

Municipal Handicraft Centre

Try your hand at bargaining for artifacts and handicrafts at these outdoor market stalls.

Reviewed By skyhoosier - Naples, Florida

This is the best place in Fiji we found for souvenirs, and the price is right. Unlike most places we've visited in the South Pacific, the stock here is almost completely home grown. While everyone wants you to look in their stall, they are not at all pushy. Of course there is also a certain sameness to the items, but if you take your time and don't make any hasty decisions there are nice pieces to be found. And, naturally, don't forget to negotiate.
