The following walking tour (9km) should take three hours – a taxi ride covering the same ground will cost F$25 with waiting time. Start from the Old Parliament on Victoria Parade and head north into the city turning left at Ratu Sukuna Park along the harbour wall of Stinson Parade and into the market. From the market, walk along Usher Street, bearing right at the traffic lights and into busy Cumming Street for shop browsing. At the end, walk uphill along Waimanu Road and at the fork, bear right up Toorak Road. Turn right on Amy Street, head past the Toorak mosque and continue along flame-tree-lined Holland Street with its fine city views, past the Laxmi Hindu Temple. At the roundabout, walk across Victoria Park to Pender Street and at the end, turn right and first left which takes you along winding Domain Road and past some expensive residences. When Domain Road eventually hits Ratu Sukuna Road, turn left and right again on Vuya Road, off which lies Parliament House where you should make a detour. Carry on down Vuya Road to Suva Point and then head right on Queen Elizabeth Drive along the picturesque foreshore, past the grand Government House and through Thurston Gardens to finish your tour at the Fiji Museum, or back on Victoria Parade.
