Waka, Hamilton - Waikato

Ngaruawahia

Ngaruawahia is culturally significant for Maori of the Waikato region. It is the home of the Maori King and the magnificent Turangawaewae Marae.

Just north of Hamilton, Ngaruawahia is a significant place for Maori culture and history. Home to the Maori King, Ngaruawahia hosts a number of important cultural events during the year.

Ornately carved Turangawaewae Marae is the Maori King's base. It is open to the public only once a year, during the annual regatta. Held on the nearest Saturday to the 17th of March, the regatta includes a parade of traditional war canoes on the Waikato River.

Ngaruawahia is located at the junction of two great rivers - Waikato and Waipa. These rivers were once important canoe routes for Maori and later for the European settlers. Taupiri Mountain, which watches over Ngaruawahia, is very sacred; on its slopes is the Waikato’s most significant Maori burial ground.
