A great spot for a bit of history and lovely scenery - the government should be giving this more support - thanks to Miriam for taking us on the tour.

“Great visit and great views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

We really enjoyed our visit to the Taveuni hill fort. A super nice guide took us around, highlighting the history of the fort as well as some of the local flora and fauna. We really enjoyed the views, although we'd recommend you be careful on the gazebo type structure, it doesn't look all that steady. Also, wear enclosed shoes - there are wild goats and they enjoy using this area as their restroom.

“Informative visit with great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

A very interesting and informative tour from a woman who is directly related to the original Tongan settlers. The views are absolutely AMAZING! Well worth the visit and the drive up the dodgy road!

“A Tahitian Invader”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Allow at least a couple of hours for this vist plus extra to cope with actually reaching the site which is up a gravelled country track. The Fort is in the process of renovation, but the extremely knowledgeable site curator managed to bring the whole site to life, perched as it is, on the top of a steep hill above the river bends, and with magnificent views over untouched bush.

No wonder that the Tahitian Invader decide to locate his home on this very strategic site
