The Story of Haunui-a-nanaia

During his journey, Haunui climbed a high mountain and upon reaching the top he sat down to rest thereupon naming the mountain range between Te Awa Kairangi (Upper Hutt) and Wairarapa as ‘Remutaka’; ‘knelt down’ (taka) and ‘gazed’ (remu).

He took in the view below of the sparkling body of water and lush forest.

We have chosen the original name of the mountain range to acknowledge the landmark/gateway which links Te Awa Kairangi with Wairarapa.
