Hikurangi

Welcome to 

Northland, New Zealand

What's on...

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.

Help Keep Hikurangi Community Police Officer 

HBA is urging community members, local business, and any one else wanting to get involved to send letters of support to back our position on keeping the Hikurangi Police station staffed with a permanent community officer.  After the retirement of long-time Police Officer Russell Rawiri, the NZ Police have not replaced his positions and this means soon our policing issues will be staffed by the Kamo Police Office. As a community it is important to have a local Police Officer stationed in our town who knows the locals and is the main point of contact for all police inquiries within our community. Please support us by writing letters of support and posting/emailing  them to: -Matt King (MP)93 Kerikeri RoadKerikeri 0230northland@parliament.govt.nz -Shane Reti (MP)105 Lower Cameron StreetWhangarei 0110shane.reti@national.org.nz -Tony Hill (District Commander Superintendent)Whangarei PolicePrivate Bag 9016Whangarei 0110anthony.hill@police.govt.nz Alternatively if you would rather email a letter of support to us, you can do so and I can forward it on, send your letter to: admin@hikurangi.co.nz  Find below a copy of the letter drafted by HBA that you can copy and paste the text if you like.  CLICK HERE for the editable Microsoft Word version. UPDATE: 25 OCTOBER 2020 Police have confirmed they will hold a public meeting at the Hikurangi Bowling Club on Friday 6th November at 10am.  The purpose of the meeting is for police to engage with the community and inform residents of their plans for the future of police staff and the police station in Hikurangi.  Anyone is welcome to attend and there will be time allowed for public to ask questions.    UPDATE: 8 NOVEMBER 2020 The police recently held a meeting in Hikurangi and have given us an update as to the future of policing in our district.   Statement from Rural Response Manager Rob Huys:Northland Police are committed to providing an excellent service to the Hikurangi community and are currently in the process of selecting two new members to fill current vacancies.  The selection process will take approximately two months and the new members are expected to be on the deck towards the end of this year, or, failing that, early in the new year.  The new members will be expected to live in or near Hikurangi.  We look forward to arranging a get-together to welcome the new members into the community, once everything is in place.  In the meantime, temporary coverage arrangements remain in place and in addition to this, further support will be provided by Whangarei Police as and when required.   The police meeting was live streamed up to the Hikurangi Business Association facebook page, and can be found there if public want to view.  The main points are:Hikurangi will get two new officers of certain status to police the whole Hikurangi District;The two officers will live in or within a certain distance to the Hikurangi district;The two officers will work a flexible roster to ensure the communities needs are met;The officers are likely to be in place around Christmas time or at the latest, before the end of January;There will be a community welcoming for the new officers:The police house will remain untenanted whilst the Police look into whether the property will be utilised by Police in the future:The Police Station will remain in Hikurangi;
