Potential in Waidamudamu heritage site

REHABILITATION works towards maintaining the Laucala Beach heritage site at Tagimoucia Place along Sekoula Rd will continue.

This follows the collection of some social capital from key organisations such as the Laucala Beach Sustainability Society, National Trust of Fiji, National Museum, QVS Old Boys 2004, and the Tourism and Hospitality Students Association.

Laucala Beach Sustainability Society co-founder and project co-ordinator Apisalome Movono said three years of rehabilitation work, which included planting Fijian medicinal plants and trees, was only possible through funding from their own pockets.

Mr Movono said rehabilitation conducted at the site was part of an eco-tourism venture to highlight the natural and cultural aspects of Fiji.

According to an archeological excavation report by the Fiji Museum in 2012, the crown reserve site which was utilised for gardening by the local residents, is a ring ditch fortification locally known as Waidamudamu.

It was surveyed in the late 60s and 70s by government assessors with the intention of preserving it.
