Gas canisters available in Sigatoka or Nadi?

We arrive in Nadi and then stay at a place close to Sigatoka. I plan to take a small tramping gas stove. The gas canisters can't go on the plane. I will need to buy a few on arrival. The stove screws into the canister (230grm butane canister with a screw connection).

Are these butane canisters available in Sigatoka or in Nadi?

A few years ago I tried to do the same thing, back then it was impossible, and I tried every place that looked likely in Nadi, Lautoka, Sigatoka and Suva! Good luck, but I don't like your chances!

I would try one of the plumbing supply stores in Nadi. Iam sure a taxi driver should be able to help even a hardware store.

Hi TaiMarilyn

Thanks for the information. How many years ago did you make your search?

4 or 5 - can't recall exactly. The situation may have changed, but so few places to camp that there is very little chance to use camping stoves, so probably no call for them. The gas company told us they could supply gas canisters - and then produced large 9kg ones!

Perhaps you could take a portable double hotplate? But of course that implies that you have an available power course...http://www.myshopping.com.au/PT--296_Small_Kitchen_Appliances?Find=portable%20double%20hotplate

Hi! Did you manage to find the gas canister? I'm on the same boat.
