Moves are underway to make the provinces of Naitasiri and Rewa hotspots for tourism.

The Government is prepared to allocate one point seven million dollars to assist in the Nausori Town Council’s plans to develop the current Nausori Bus Station into a tourist facility.

Commissioner Central [Lt Col] LaiseniaTuitubou says, resource owners need to take advantage of this initiative.

“There’s a lot of potential in the central division but it needs to be tapped and we have the facility to look at but it has to come from the community and then government comes in and with all the stakeholders involved to come in and really what the community wants."

An eco-tourism project is underway in Rewa with government pumping in 200- thousand dollars for infrastructure development.

A tourist jetty is also being planned by the town’s river bank where tourists can disembark for sightseeing on the Rewa River.
