Stop At: Waimarama Beach, Waimarama, Hastings New Zealand

We start our tour where our story begins: on the shores of Waimarama beach where the great migration canoe Takitimu was dragged ashore to make repairs over 800 years ago. See for yourself why they stayed on and established the great fortress of Hakikino, deep in the surrounding hills.

From the coast we visit the remnant of Hakikino on our family’s Conservation Reserve. As you walk the pathways and experience the remaining pockets of native plants, native forests and wetland areas, you will gain insight as to how these ancient people lived here and appreciate why this fortress settlement would dominate this coastline for over 300 years.
