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.

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
