Welcome to historic Hikurangi.


Hikurangi is a small township fifteen minutes north of Whangarei.  It is the gateway to the Tutukaka coast and the perfect place to stop for a coffee on your way North.  Hikurangi is a name used in many parts of New Zealand because it commemorates a well-known peak in Hawaiki, from where Maori migrated.

In 1875 a road to Whangarei was established and Hikurangi became a timber milling centre. It further flourished in 1894 when coal mining began in the area.  Today it is still a small busy community as a service centre to the local farming areas of Hukerenui, Opuawhanga, Marua, Puhipuhi, Whakapara and Towai plus the neighbouring coastal area of Helena Bay.  The town has a primary school, two churches an historic pub, a number of early childhood centres, sports facilities, four square, beauty salons and even a museum.
