Visit the semi-restored ancient Fijian fort of Tavuni Hill Fort, a National Archeological Site near Naroro Village, where the guardians of this former fortress live. Learn about the area's pre-colonial Fijian life and admire the beautiful views from two lookout points. Hire a guide to teach you about the country's history of tribal warfare and even cannibalism. If you forgo a guide, however, there are still some plaques throughout the complex with English explanations. Use our Sigatoka trip site to visit Tavuni Hill Fort on your trip to Sigatoka, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
Tavuni Hill Fort reviews
We had a rental car and could easily drive to Tavuni Hill Fort. Entry fee is $13 FJD pp. The lady who welcomed us is from the village below and a descendant of the Tongan tribe. Very interesting... more »
Location a little out of the way but really enjoyed the visit. Very easy short walk with amazing views down to a local village, the huge sigatoka river and across to a variety of crops in the salad... more »
Fantastic historic location with beautiful views. Easy location to venture too and suits all ages. The guides were brilliant and really took the time to answer all our questions (even the kids random ones).
If you are interested in Fijian history and want to see how things were in the 1800s this is one of Fiji's more accessible fort sites. From the top of the site there are excellent views of the Sigatoka River valley. The visitor centre has improved greatly and local staff will give you a guided tour and explain the history of the site especially where they killed and ate their enemies.
