In long ages past there were 22 acres of land at Lawakai Toki. Before the British set up Levuka as the Capital of Fiji Vuma village was set up in the hills. When the British set up its old Capital Levuka, Lawaki Toki was the private residence of the Governor General Sir Arthur Gordon. His two wooden houses were set in the area today adjoining the swimming pool and today is a recreational center.
