It is 118 kilometres northeast of Napier, and 92 kilometres southwest of Gisborne.Wairoa is Māori for long water portraying the length of the tranquil river that runs throughout the town.Early settlement in the area included a whaling station and trading post, dealing largely in flax. These establishments offered sufficient income and attraction. Its initial name was Clyde, but this was changed largely to avoid confusion with Clive near Napier and Clyde in the South Island. The north part of the town is called North Clyde. The town rose to prominence during the New Zealand Wars, during which time it was a garrison town.Wairoa is a manufacturing and farming service town.
