Hokianga Life Style Valley

We have opened our Hokianga valley to tourism, see the Newest Wonder of the World

The total area is 144 ha (356 acres):


THE CLIMATE

The Wairere Valley has its own micro climate, which is very mild and relatively dry compared to the surrounding places. It is sheltered from harsh winds and the heavy rainfall normally coming from the east of the island.


THE HISTORY

The very early history of New Zealand started in the Hokianga. One of the earliest settlements were in the Wairere Valley and even a little place called WAIRERE is still to be found on older maps. Since then the buildings have disappeared. Our cottage is one of the oldest 'farm houses' in the area and has kept its lovely cosy look. The site of the oldest timber mill can be found on the river flat, and remnants of a flume taking the water to the water wheel can still be seen in the Boulder Valley of the Wairere creek.
