Te-Aroha Waihou Hauraki Mokena
Te Aroha Waihou Hauraki Mōkena

We are very fortunate in Te Aroha to have some unique geographical features: The rich farmland of the Hauraki Plains, The Waihou River, Mokena Geyser, and the most obvious; Mount Te Aroha. All four of these things are particular to our area, and in Te Reo Maori, would be the geographic points you would use to identify where you are from.

Ko Te Aroha te Maunga (Te Aroha is the Mountain)

Ko Waihou te Awa (Waihou is the River)

Ko Hauraki te whenua (Hauraki is the land)

Ko Mōkena te ngawha (Mokena is the Geyser)

These names aren’t just present in our sporting events but form part of our Stanley Ave mihi and Stanley Ave whakatauki(proverb). This can be shown in the Stanley Avenue Logo
