Photographer's Note

Looking down from the cliff on Hokianga Harbour, Omapere.
Omapere is a very popular location for tourists as the natural harbour and the tranquility that surrounds this part of the North Island of New Zealand is priceless.

According to Te Tai Tokerau tradition, Kupe, the legendary Polynesian navigator and explorer, settled in Hokianga in approximately 925 AD, after his journey of discovery from Hawaiiki aboard the waka (canoe) named Matahorua. When he left Hokianga he declared that this would be the place of his return and left several things behind including the bailer of his canoe. Later, Kupe's grandson Nukutawhiti returned from Hawaiiki to settle in Hokianga.
