Story: Ngāi Tūhoe

The Waimana Valley

The Waimana Valley

The Waimana Valley is in the northern Urewera. This photograph is taken from near Tātaiahape marae, looking south towards the Matahī Valley. Maungapōhatu is in the distance. The river that runs through the valley is also known as Waimana; however its original name is Tauranga. It joins the Ōhinemataroa River at a point one kilometre south-west of the town of Tāneatua.
