Tokelau is situated at 2 Manning Street, Tuncurry and is considered by the Great Lakes Council as a Heritage item of Regional significance. The old home is nestled under a towering Norfolk Island Pine and has always been a local landmark; being originally built as close as possible to the old punt landing it became famous for it's hospitality.

The house and adjacent church were built in 1909 by Ernest Wright (son of John Wright) and the second storey constructed in 1920. The Wright family arrived from Scotland in 1858 and pioneered the region's economic development through their sawmill at Bungwahl which supplied timber for the family enterprises of house building and ship yards at Bungwahl and Tuncurry. The first ship was built in 1877 and the last in 1954.

As ship builders and timber traders the Wright's sailed the trade winds of the Pacific and aptly named their homes 'Tokelau' meaning 'North East Wind'. The house is built from the timbers cut at the saw mill, and includes some nautical features. Various plants in the garden were established from the local area and the Pacific Islands including a 100 year old grape vine the fruit of which provided communion wine for the Church.

Operating as a Bed & Breakfast, you are now able to open the doors to the character and charm of this by-gone era.

The three common rooms are graciously decorated with high ornate ceilings, fireplaces and federation features. The ambience is friendly and cosy with the period and antique furniture throughout providing that perfect on-water corner to escape.

The warmth of the federation flavour extends into each of the generous bedrooms with luxuriously appointed ensuites, some boasting traditional tessellated tiles, claw-foot hip baths and antique washstands.
Each bedroom for those intimate moments together.
