Kawhia is known in Māori lore as the final resting place of the ancestral waka (canoe) Tainui. Soon after arrival, captain Hoturoa made it first priority to establish a whare wananga (sacred school of learning) which was named Ahurei. The harbour area was the birthplace of prominent Māori warrior chief Te Rauparaha of the Ngāti Toa tribe.
Te Kuiti. The 2.9m high sculpture was made to honour the 55 test All Black nicknamed "Pinetree."
Went fishing with our host and Kawhia Camp owner. For the cost of a donation for petrol we got a freezer full of Snapper and great company. Brilliant. Well done mate.
View from the small township.
One of New Zealand's most iconic All Blacks has been honoured with a statue in his hometown of Te Kuiti.

Our host and Kawhia Camp owner. We caught probably 20-30 legal size schnapper in 40 minutes and brought home 15 to fillet.
View from Scape Holiday Park right on waters edge. One of the best run and serviced motor camps we've stayed at. Plus fantastic fishing with Conrad, Camp owner.
A small town, population less than 400. A hidden gem. Tidal but a beautiful harbour. Great for Schnapper fishing.
Cant say enough good stuff about this camp. Booked for 1 night and ended up staying for 3.
