Overview of Alofi National Memorial

The national memorial in Alofi incorporates the tablet from the original memorial, opened in 1926. It listed the names of those who died during the First World War. The 1926 memorial crumbled over time and was replaced in 1964 (first image above) by a new memorial incorporating the original tablet. This memorial also deteriorated and the tablet is now on the left side of the national memorial. On the right side is a new tablet listing the names of all the men from Niue who went to the First World War.

It was erected above the wharf in the village of Alofi. The concrete memorial has been replaced at least twice due to the harsh climatic conditions, but the marble tablet has been reused each time. - Courtesy of www.nzhistory.net.nz Detail of roll of honour plaque at Alofi for WWI veterans - Courtesy of www.nzhistory.net.nz Governor-General Sir Bernard Fergusson at opening of the second memorial on Alofi green, rebuilt by the RSA after the first had crumbled in the harsh climatic conditions of the island - Courtesy of www.nzhistory.net.nz List of names from original monument - Courtesy of www.nzhistory.net.nz Detail of original memorial plaque at Alofi - Courtesy of www.nzhistory.net.nz

Kay J. wrote about Pine Haven Hotel :

"Pine Haven Hotel is close to the town and very accessible. The furniture used in this hotel are locally made and that made me admire the locals who made them and Pieter, the owner who designed each piece beautifully. The place is clean and pleasantly comfortable. The owners make you feel like you're part of the family. I'll surely visit again someday.
