We had a lovely ride into the town of Sigatoka on board the rattly old red train, but it gave us a good view of life in Fiji either side of the tracks. Seeing the children in the Kindergarten was interesting and cute. When you get into town though, try to go your own way to look around as the... More

The train slowly travels from Cuvu to Sigatoka township. The station is near the Shangri-La Hotel. It slowly travels through communities where children wait for the train to receive lollies from the travellers. Bring your own lollies to share with the kids, if not they can be purchased cheaply from the station. The train travels through the sugar cane and... More

We took the full day trip from the main station on the coast in front of the Shangri La Hotel to Sigatoka town. While we enjoyed the scenery and found it interesting passing through villages there were also disappointments. When we boarded the old train we were pressed several times by staff to buy lollies from the station shop to... More

Our family group of 10 went on this today, children under 5 are free. Was a great trip, unfortunately near the end of our train ride a tree fell down over night and blocked the rail line, out of their control. They were very apologetic, but we understood this was out of their control. We walked out to the main... More

We had a great half-day tour on a rainy morning. It was school holidays so we had lots of children running along the train asking for lollies (ration your supplies as you will go through 4 or 5 villages). Our guide, Nuky, was fantastic!

It was a class excursion to Sigatoka town. There are no passenger trains in Fiji. This was a wonder!

Wow what a trip back in time. Original sugar cane train. Really original. Lol. Amazing insight how the village people live. Took 4 bags of lollies but want enough as I felt sorry for the little ones. Took some toys for the preschool as well as a small donation. Morning tea was good. Singing from the kids so cute. Sigatoka... More
