Royal Palace

Tonga / The Pacific

The Royal Palace is the official residence of the King, a fine Victorian-style colonial building in white, made of kauri wood, with a red-tiled roof.  It was built in 1864 on the waterfront, to the north-east of Nuku’alofa amidst extensive lawns with casuarina trees.  It was surrounded by a stone fence a metre high on which, out of respect no one ever sat, but in 1990 the King replaced it with a 3-metre high grid fence.  The Palace is not open to the public.
