This lush tropical rainforest park, pronounced tholo-ee-soo-va, is located directly north of Suva (check the Suva map at bottom). Located at an altitude of 120m-180m, it's cool and peaceful a welcoming change from Suva's urban life.
It's teeming with tropical birds and flourishing flora. Some of the aspects include:
The 2.5km² forest reserve receives around 420cm of rain a year, so it rains most days so bring appropriate footwear as the trails will probably be slippery.

It's the oldest museum in the South Pacific and I found it rather informative and very
well maintained. You will find many original
archaeological artifacts and great information on Fiji's political, cultural, and linguist past including it's cannibalistic history.
Location: Ratu Cakobau Rd & Queen Elizabeth Dr
Close to the museum, you can walk over there after. With walking trails it has manicured vegetation labelled that only a horticulturalist could understand. A lovely area for a spot of picnic, especially under
the impressive fig trees.
Open times: Monday to Friday 6am - 6pm and Saturday until 4:30pm
Location: Usher St
