Tara and Tautoki were the sons of Whātonga, who captained the Kurahaupō canoe. Starting at Māhia Peninsula, they travelled south along the coast, stopping at Rangiwhakaoma (Castlepoint), Ōkoriwa in Palliser Bay and Wellington Harbour – which was named Te Whanganui-a-Tara (the great harbour of Tara). They then made their way up the west coast and inland to Taupō, before heading east, back to Māhia.
