Navua, Fiji

Nestled on the banks of the Navua river, the town of the same name is on the seaward side of the Queens highway, 1 hrs drive west of Suva.

Navua is located within Serua Province in the Central Division of Fiji. During colonial times it was a sugar growing area, but the closure of the sugar mill in Navua  in 1923 led to a decline in economic activity in the district. The construction of a resort at Pacific Harbour  in the 1970s and an influx of tourist related activities has led to increases in economic activity in the area.

This is a quiet riverside town, where villagers from upriver arrive to sell their produce in the markets. If you have some time to spare, ask one of the punt operators about a trip up the river. It's a great experience, and not to be missed in my opinion. Navua is the starting point of a lot of inland river tours. However, you will generally need to prebook.
