If you take a trip on the sugar cane train expecting it to be like a Disneyland ride, you are going to be sorely disappointed. The train is old but absolutely charming. The track meanders along the coastline and through a number of small villages on the way to Sigatoka. Unscheduled stops are common as the engineer, and sometimes the... More

Me and my friends had lots of fun catching the ride from Sigatoka town to Cuvu station. From there we went to Geckos restaurant for the dinner and show. We boarded the train next to Tappoos... and travelled slowly through jungle and villages along the old sugar train tracks. Although we are locals, we really enjoyed the scenery and waving... More

There are lots of very touristy things you can do in Fiji, so the sugar cane train was a welcome change from that. The train travels along a very narrow gauge track along the coast, through thick vegetation and many tiny rural villages. We had a heart-warming stop at a kindergarden for ethnic Fijian children, Jubaniwai, which was financed and... More

Our family, 2 adults & 2 kids did this one way railway journey to Sigatoka for $69FJ per adult, kids 1/2 price, under 5 free. TOTALLY WORTH THE PRICE!!!! The train and carriages are rustic (as is the track), so we had to stop on occasion to remove overgrown trees, fallen branches and to clear the dirt off the railway... More

If I could take stars away I would, truly the crappiest experience I have ever had and I really thought it would be hard to beat the 1 star I gave to my dubaii desert safari. I only gave it 1 star as trip advisor won't let me give it no stars. I can't find one good thing to say... More

Did a one way journey along this railway for 60 FJ dollars. The train and carriages and track are a heap of junk but that is really its greatest attraction. The train has to stop numerous times to clear the rails of dirt and fallen branches, even once had someone on the roof hacking away a tree with a two... More

We were excited about travelling on the railway but the day we travelled was very disappointing. The reason being was that they used a Diesel engine and all the diesel fumes kept coming into the carriages even with the door in-between closed. We had booked for a whole day trip but had to end at half a day in Sigatoka.... More

It was really good just like travelling through the jungle, like Indiana Jones. The only problem was the train derailing and we had to pick up a bus but it was all fun An experience you cant get everywhere. Great

Charming little old train, was just us on the train. Just such a sense of adventure-felt like we were in the jungle, bits of tree coming inside the train, and even having to stop while the driver got off and removed bits of tree, vines etc that were covering the track. Great scenery along the way, and really enjoyed the... More

Unfortunately they have had lots of problems with trains derailing because the tracks were so bad so now it's permanently closed.
