The opening of Toorak Central in an historic part of Suva has bought fresh attention to the changing neighbourhood. Once known as the place to procure after-midnight longnecks and steak and egg (or curry and cassava) fry-ups from the infamous Sunia Cama’s, it is now attracting a new style of retailer. Bordered by the Colonial War Memorial Hospital and home to some of Suva’s most important houses of worship, here are some local highlights.
Toorak Central offers modern short term accommodation in stylish studio and one bedroom apartments. The complex also houses Élevé, a pocket sized café and pizzeria, and Urban Bliss Spa. Soon to open, a champagne and whisky bar, Privé.
