---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- About WAIUKU

Waiuku is situated at the head of an estuary of the same name which opens into the southern part of the Manukau Harbour. Access is by highway via Papakura from Auckland, 42 miles north-west, and by road from Pukekohe, 13 miles east. A branch railway links Waiuku with the North Island Main Trunk line at Paerata, north of Pukekohe.

Waiuku is a distributing and servicing centre for a large dairy and mixed farming district. Mairoro State Forest, established on dune country south-west of the town in 1932, is coming into production. Industrial activities in the town include light engineering, butter making, the manufacture of knitwear and clothing, and joinery and small-boat building. New Zealand's first steel plant is being established on a site at Glenbrook (about 5 miles north-east of Waiuku) and will treat ironsand brought from the shore deposits at Waikato Heads.

Waiuku came into existence about 1843 as a port on the then important trade route between Auckland and the agricultural area of the Waikato. It was also the terminal of an ancient Maori portage between the Waikato River and the Manukau Harbour. During the Waikato War (1863–64), Waiuku became a frontier town guarded by a blockhouse. The Waikato War ended the traffic responsible for the early development of the town as a trading post. The Kentish Hotel dates from the 1850s and nearby can be seen the ruins of the original town wharf. Waiuku later grew as a farming centre under road board administration, and in 1914 became a town district. It was constituted a borough in 1955. The accepted meaning of “Waiuku” is muddy or discolored waters.

Waiuku Museum & Pioneer Folk Park Situated on the Tamakae Reserve Historical Park in Waiuku adjacent to the Fire Station. This unique museum, opened since 1965, offers a fascinating and varied insight into the early Pioneer History of the Waiuku Region in the heart of the Franklin District.

From the Maori Land Wars of the 1860´s and the evolution of early 19th Century river and sea trade which played such a central role in the development of trade between the Waikato and Auckland Regions. Permanent exhibitions and constantly evolving displays of local history.
