Kula Eco Park is an ecological preserve in Fiji. It is located on Fiji’s largest island, Viti Levu, near Sigatoka. The area was originally established as a bird park in the 1980s, but was bought by Kula Eco Park Management in January 1997. With an extensive system of walkways through the park, and a wide range of attractions, the park is now a popular tourist attraction.

Tavuni Hill Fort is said to have been built by Maile Latamai Finau a Tongan chieftain and his followers on their arrival from Tonga via Kadavu and Serua Island a couple of hundreds of years ago. He was of noble birth and from the Tuipelehake lineage. He was good looking, strong headed and a womaniser and was banished by his father for some misdeed with a high born lady. Maile Finau left the Tuipelehake powerbase at the time which was supposed to be Lapaha in Tonga for Fiji with a band of loyal warriors and followers.

The Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park is located at the mouth of the Sigatoka River on the island of Viti Levu in Fiji. They are located approximately 3 km West of the town of Sigatoka.
They are the product of erosion in the coastal hinterland and coastal dune forming processes. The extensive dune system covers an area of 650 hectares and comprises a series of parabolic sand dunes of various ages and activities. The dunes range from around 20-60m tall.
The dunes have been forming over thousands of years and archaeological excavations here have uncovered pottery more than 2600 years old, as well as one of the largest burial sites in the Pacific. Evidence of the past is clearly visible throughout the dune system as pottery scatters, stone tools, human remains and other archaeological relics continue to be uncovered by natural processes.
