One of the most popular sites in Suva is Albert Park. It is located in the heart of Suva right opposite the government buildings. Albert Park is known for its role as the intended landing place for the first flight across the Pacific, a feat achieved in 1928 by the Australian aviator Charles Kingsford Smith. The park’s lawns served as a runway, with its palm trees cut down for that purpose when the little plane successfully landed and was welcomed by thousands of onlookers. This park is home to Rugby, Soccer, and Cricket competitions. It has 4 rugby fields where rugby enthusiasts do display their stuff over the weekends. Albert Park is also home to events.
