About Presidential Palace

There is one guard which stands at the entrance of the palace and this is basically done every month when there is an exchange of on-duty and off-duty guards. They sometimes have a march through the main streets of the capital by the military personal right to the Government House. This shows the support for the President, and the Government, and safeguards the security of the people of Fiji.

The residence of Fiji’s president is guarded by Fijian soldiers clad in impressive, starched white Sulus (sarongs) and vivid red tunics. The changing of the guard is an event popular with tourists as they quickly snap photos. Spectacular military events can be scheduled into your itinerary by noting the celebratory day in your tour calendars. This information can be gathered from the Fiji Visitors Bureau.
