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.

This railway is closed and not operating anymore. All the railway stuff are still there but no one operating the venue.

We travelled on the Coral Coast Railway after reading about it on Trip Advisor. We are glad we made the decision to make the journey. For us part of our travelling adventures is seeing the "REAL" lifestyles of the people. We travelled by rail through numerous villages, with smiling happy people always ready to shout out a Bula! The highlight... More

Brochure states you go through authentic Fijian villages. The train drives right past them. You get dumped off in Sigatoka where our guide sat in the air-conditioned shop and told us to come and see her when we were done shopping. Our guide offered us no information or 'guidance' about the trip/location/Fijian way of life etc. Only up side was... More

We tend to gravitate to train rides wherever we go so this was a must on our list. The only 'train' in Fiji we were picked up from our hotel in an old van and driven to the 'station'. Told to take bug spray and water we followed these instructions spending nearly $20. A barely standing building was in front... More

Took the tour thinking it is something my kids (7 & 4) would enjoy. The railway is near the entrance to the Shangri-las Fijian resort and was constructed in 1934. The train and station do not appear to have been updated since then. The interior of the train is very run down and I also had concerns about the metal... More

Broke down, again. We were then bussed to Sigatoka and dropped off. No explanation, no guide what to do. Poorly managed and run. Asked for a refund, which was refused by Rosie holidays.

My kids are pretty easily impressed but when they saw the train they said "what's that dad?!' It was one carriage and rather ramshackle. After being funnelled through the shop and asked to buy water we boarded the train. Patched up all around it wasn't until one if my boys opened the window and the window fell to pieces that... More
