According to the famous Torres Strait legend, if you have a taste of the juicy fruit from the Wongai Tree, you will always return. The Wongai Beach Hotel was built in 1991, and originally only consisted of a public bar and dining room with four hotel units.

The whole premise has been landscaped and provides a safe secure haven for all guests and patrons.
