Nausori Town is located about 20 kilometres East of the Fijian capital, Suva, on Viti Levu, Fiji’s largest island.

This town is named after the village of its traditional landowners, Nausori Village.

Nausori’s central business district (CBD) lays on the banks of Fiji’s widest river, the Rewa River and surrounded by large tracts of agricultural farmlands.The Nausori International Airport is Fiji’s second main airport and caters to domestic flights, including international passengers who transit through Nadi International Airport to Fiji’s capital.

Due to its proximity to Suva City, there is a general notion that Nausori’s township begins from the Rewa Bridge, however Nausori’s wards actually include residential areas on the Suva-side of the Rewa River; Davuilevu, Wainibuku,Nakasi and Naulu.

Despite the small size of the Nausori CBD, the town’s large population reflects its meeting point for the three provinces of Naitasiri, Rewa and Tailevu..

Nausori Town is within Fiji’s Central Division, Nausori Town’s municipal boundary along Princess Rd currently ends at the Waila Housing development, which will change as boundaries expand to Waila 3A and Waila 3B in Davuilevu, as well as to the Nausori International Airport near Wainibokasi.
