Hokianga's Castle Rock with Mac Donnell's House

We do not exactly know when this house was built. It was around 1900. The area was once a complete village, and on old maps its name WAIRERE (meaning flying water) can still be found. There were several buildings and the traces of one of New Zealand's first timber mill with a water wheel and a flume of over 1 km length can still be partly recognised. On the horizon in the back is Castle Rock, the characteristic point of the area.
