Just 15 minutes north of the bustling city center is this oasis of flora and birdlife, crisscrossed by streams and rivers. You can walk a quarter-mile (half-kilometer) nature trail or hike the longer trails totaling more than 6.5 km (over 4 mi). There are three swimming pools including a Main Pool with a rope swing and nearby picnic tables, and two Upper Pools preserved in their natural states. Both areas have toilet facilities. Be on the look-out for the Ant-Plant (Hydnophytum species), recognizable by its swollen trunk base and nourished by the food brought by its resident insects. You can hire a guide for US$15.
In the early morning bird-watchers might spot the Fiji Goshawk and Blue-Crested Broadbill, which are found only in Fiji. The park is also home to Sulphur-Breasted Musk Parrots, barking Pigeons, Golden whistler, Slaty Flycatchers, Golden Doves, and Spotted Fantails among other species. One minute up the road from the entrance is the Raintree Lodge restaurant, a nice setting for a post-exploration meal. You can take the Sawani bus from the city. The visitor center is in the modest group of buildings just after a big bend on the left.
