    A pleasant bush walk, but not a stroll in the park.
    It’s a pretty cool bush walk, but defiantly not for a casual walker. Running/trail shoes are defiantly recommended. It kind of feels like you have entered an abandoned tourist attraction built 20 years ago. The security guards were lovely and informed us of which areas were open and closed. We didn’t meet another person on the walk and it took us a lazy hour and a half (lots of photo stops.) We didn’t swim, but the water was clear even after lots of rain. As others have mentioned, the trail map is much more of a drawing than a map 😊 Well worth the $5 entry price in my opinion 👍🏼

    Beautiful but needs some love
    We took a taxi from the Suva port to the forest today. Firstly be sure to secure a price before you go. We paid $60 Fiji $$ ( $30 US approximately) for a return trip. It was $5 Fiji $ at the entrance per person, The forest was absolutely beautiful as well as the water falls and swimming pools. There are no maps to carry with you in the park, only a sign at the start of the trails. The trails are not marked and it is very easy to get lost. The railings and foot trails are poorly maintained. They recommend you taking a guide so you don’t get lost (which really means $$$$). Almost like they don’t put signage on the trail so you hire a guide. It was a beautiful rainforest and the experience was breathtaking. Wish it was a bit safer to walk through.

    Worth a visit if your fitness levels are up to scratch
    Waterfall was divine. Tour operators failed to disclose there is a rocky 10 minutes downhill path to walk to and then about 100 steps downhill to get to it. Not a problem for us, but felt sorry for others in the group (elderly) that were struggling.

    Beautiful Area - Dress For the Walk.
    Worth the walk - not very difficult although wearing the right shoes is important. On the day we walked there was one pretty painful fall (Flip flops) and a later tour had a broken limb. Guide was knowledgeable, food was pretty good. Bus in and out a bit scary. The dip in the water was appreciated by all who come to do so.

We caught the local bus from the market in Suva and got off outside. We paid the minimal fee to get in and walked in. One of the local workers guided us and we had a fantastic walk through the rainforest. It is very wet and you really need to wear safety shoes or something solid as it gets muddy etc. That was part of what I liked about it, the rawness of it. Lots of places to swim along the way and at the end a big pool where a lot of locals and tourists were swimming and jumping of a swinging rope. Definitely worth the excursion

Nice place to take a dip in some pools. There are 2 different paths that lead to different sets of pools. One was better marked than the other. We picked a holiday weekend (Easter Friday) to go so it was pretty crowded with locals. We checked out all the pools and hung out for a couple of hours. The staff at the parking lot were friendly. We had a rental car so it was nice to know they were staff watching the lot.

The hikes are awesome, the paths are well-maintained and emcompass a range of environments from high canopy to low stream trails. The main path follows the waterfalls as they cascade, with a few natural pools to delve into. The forest is alive with sounds of birds and crickets chiming, especially in the dawn hours. You are able to see the friendly staff in the main office who can arrange a bird watching tour at early morning. Every member of staff was keen to say 'Bula!' and talk about the park and nature they are so passionate about conserving.

Great little park with some lovely waterfalls. They’ve paved the area around the pools so you can take a dip; unbelievably refreshing! The staff were all really helpful and they have a nice setup with restrooms etc.

You absolutely MUST wear good footwear with good tread! The path along the water is wet and mossy and very slippery in places. Do not attempt this in flip flops.

Just be aware that there is only one trail which will take a couple of hours to hike; you won’t be spending a day here.

This is a great little thing to do when visiting Suva. It is so close to the city, but you are in a beautiful rainforest. It was the perfect place to break up days in the busy city. The water was clean and inviting. The tracks are well maintained and clear. We saw minimal people and enjoyed the experience

Shore excursion from SS Mariner. Hiked from upper pool to lower pool where a few of us had a dip. Exhilarating hike (watch your step) and rewarding swim in cool (compared to air temperature) water. Fun experience.

Lovely place to visit and spend the day swimming, walking and having a picnic. Unfortunately some of the board walks are run down and not good for people with even the slightest mobility issues but efforts are made to make it more accessible. The pools are beautiful and great for a swim. There are clean toilets at the car park and information about the wildlife.
