Welcome to Nasilai Village & Naililili Catholic Mission


Near the village is the Naililili Catholic Mission, built by French missionaries at the turn of the 20th century. The stained-glass windows were imported from Europe and incorporate Fijian writing and imagery.

There are regular buses to Wainibokasi Landing from Nausori bus station ($1.50, 20 minutes). There you can catch a boat to the Naililili Catholic Mission, which is almost opposite the landing, or take a short trip downriver to Nasilai village. Ask a local for permission to visit the village and take along some kava for a sevusevu.

If driving from Nausori, head southeast for 6km on the road that runs parallel to the Rewa River. Pass the airport entrance and turn right at the T-junction. The landing is a further 5km from here, well past the bridge across the Wainibokasi River – follow the sealed road.
