Why should I visit Colo-i-Suva Forest Park?

Colo-i-Suva Forest Park was set up in 1970 and has since then flourished into a wonderful attraction for all of those travelling to Fiji.

In 1964, the Colo-i-Suva Forest Reserve was established with a simple mahogany stand, so the area has long been recognised for its natural beauty and stunning opportunities for exploration.

There are amazing adventure activities

There sure is no shortage of adventure activities at the park. There are many hiking trails, places to swim and go birdwatching. There are 14 different bird species here, including scarlet robins, spotted fantails, golden doves and barking pigeons, and the swimming pools are natural, stunning and very refreshing in the tropical climate.

With such gorgeous waterfalls, flora and fauna, and colourful native birds, you're in the ideal place to go exploring. If you want a guided tour, the rangers can take you around for two hours for $30.

You can relax with your loved ones

With an abundance of naturally stunning locations it isn't hard to find a spot to relax with your family. Fill your backpacks with snacks and maybe a little something sweet (the markets are a great place to find fresh produce and tropical fruits) and head to the park.

It is easy to get to

The Suva Nausori Express leaves the Suva Bus Station every 15 minutes and costs just $2. Alternatively, you can take the Nausori Sawani Bus which also departs from Suva Bus Station every 30 minutes. If you decide to take a taxi, it'll cost you just around $8-$12 from the Suva Market to the park and take just 10-15 minutes.

Take the $5 entry fee, plenty of water, good walking shoes, a light jacket as there are light showers often and a towel if you want to go swimming.
