The Royal Palace is the only official residence of the head of state, built of wood. The palace was built from Kauri wood in 1864 in the vicinity of Auckland (New Zealand), was demolished, transported and reassembled on Tongatapu Island in 1867.

During its nearly 150-year-old history, the palace has undergone repairs more than once, but it has not been fundamentally rebuilt until recently.

This is a two-story building in the early colonial style with a pronounced three-story tower and two smaller decorative at the edges of the attached sections.
