I attended Tavuni Hill Fort as part of a wedding. The ceremony was held at the top of the hill overlooking the Sigatoka river. Unfortunately I didn't get to explore any of the fort relics, but found the walk up the hill easy going...as a person who doesn't exercise that much, easy going for me means it's probably ridiculously easy....

We loved the amazing views from the top of the hill and as you could hear any sounds from the valley you can see why it was built here, as some of the other reviews stated it is very run down and when we spoke to the staff she said that it was due to be renovated. Seeing the last... More

We stopped here on the way home from another excursion. We were the only people here, and the lady curator took as on a tour of the fort. It was very interesting to hear the history. The kids particularly liked the goats wandering around, and seeing the lovu where unlucky prisoners used to get cooked! Beautiful views from the top.... More

This place is a little out of the way, and you do need good imagination to picture something out of the few ruins. But it offers great views of the area and it is a nice and shaded area for a little walk in the heat. There is a little info center as well that tells you a bit about... More

We found the fort very interesting, it's a terrible shame to see this historical sight so neglected. The lookout is a danger to the public. National Parks were due to visit the day we attended to see what was needed to fix the tracks. They should definitely preserve this sight.

We really enjoyed this little slice of Fijian and Tongan heritage. It was amazing to see remains of shells and outlines of properties of the people who once lived here. Our guide was very informative and our driver joined us for the expedition. I would recommend bringing walking shoes and a bottle of water. The guide gave us a grapefruit... More

A great spot for a bit of history and lovely scenery - the government should be giving this more support - thanks to Miriam for taking us on the tour.
