Colo-I-Suva Forest Park (pronounced Tholo-ee-Suva) was once a true tropical lowland rainforest, which has been interplanted with mahogany. It is in the upper drainage area of Waisila catchment, alongside Princes Road. The Department of Forestry manages the Forest Park.


We recommend that you begin your excursion at the Forestry Station visitor information centre, where staff can answer any questions you may have.

Parking and toilet facilities have been established near the park’s two Upper Pools, a short distance from a loop trail offering excellent forest trekking. These and the Main Pool have been developed as swimming areas.

All other pools are preserved in their natural state, and under proper adult supervision many are shallow enough for a child to paddle in.


The Forest Park is between 122 to 183m (400-600ft) above sea level and is therefore both cooler and slightly wetter than Suva. It gets about 424cm (167in) of rain a year with some falling, on average, 4 days a week. November – March are the wet months, while May – August is considered the dry season.

The mean annual temperature is a comfortable 24 degrees Celsius (75 degrees Fahrenheit) between February and July, the warmest and coolest months.

Safety & Comfort Tips

The streams rise slowly but surely during very heavy rains. Do not attempt to cross the streams in their flooded stage.
Wear adequate shoes and be careful when using the rope swing and diving in the pools.
Valuables can be kept at the Raintree Lodge or at the Forestry office for safekeeping.
