Ngati Whatua have generously
offered us hospitality at the Naumai marae. A koha of $50 per person
would be appreciated. Please give this to Trish Rea during your
time at Naumai.
Naumai marae is between
Dargaville and Ruawai on the West Coast, in the Kaipara area. Coming
from the north Naumai is about 3-5 kms south of Tokatoka maunga
(mountain). From the south it is around two hours drive from Auckland.
A map is attached for your reference.
Turn off State Highway
One (SH1) at the Brenderwyn Hills and follow SH12, head towards
Dargaville. Pass through Ruawai and continue to head north. Around
5kms past Ruawai, on the main highway (SH12) you will notice the
Ruawai airfield to your left. The marae is about half a kilometre
past the airfield, on the right. The marae is easy to see once you
have passed the airfield. Please aim to be outside the marae gate
at least 15 minutes before the start time of 10am.
