Horeke

(4.3/5 based on 120 reviews for 2 attractions)
Things to do: nature
Horeke is a settlement in the upper reaches of the Hokianga Harbour in Northland, New Zealand. Kohukohu is just across the harbour. The Horeke basalts are located near the town, and can be viewed on an easy stroll through the Wairere Boulders, a commercial park.HistoryThe town was initially called Deptford after the Royal Navy shipyard in England. It was one of the first places settled by Europeans in New Zealand, with shipbuilding established in the late 1820s. David Ramsay and Gordon Davies Browne came from Sydney to set up a trading post and shipbuilding settlement about 1826. Three ships were built - a 40-ton schooner called Enterprise, a 140-ton brigantine called New Zealander, and the 394 (or 392)-ton barque Sir George Murray - but the firm went bankrupt in 1830. The Wesleyan missionary John Hobbs opened a mission at Mangungu, about a mile from the shipyard, in 1828.Thomas McDonnell's station in Horeke was the centre of timber trading in the Hokianga in the 1830s.EducationHoreke School is a coeducational contributing primary (years 1-6) school with a decile rating of 2 and a roll of 23.
