Pou Whenua: Karekare

This pou (carved pole) is close to the Karekare car park, in the direction of the surf club. It signifies the spiritual guardianship of Te Kawarau a Maki of the place. “It also recognises that Karekare is a special place to be enjoyed and respected by all.” (From the explanatory sign.)


  1. I love it!

  2. I really love all the Maori wisdom and folklore that you find all over your lovely country. We were entranced by New Zealand. We even visited Karekare beach – to imbibe some of the atmosphere from The Piano, very touristy I am sure but a wonderful place.
