From all of us here in Waitara, we warmly welcome all our manuhiri (visitors) and hope you have a great time whilst you’re here, that you travel to and from our town safety that you leave with a full puku (belly!) and wonderful memories

As I write this (20 January) – we have just had a dumping of snow on the Maunga (Mountain) which is very strange indeed, but hopefully the weather gods will shine down on our town and visitors during the whole month of February so that you can all experience the best of Waitara Manaakitanga (hospitality).




Waitara Alive; A Waitara Community Development Organisation, has been extremely fortunate to have the support of the Taranaki Electricity Trust as primary operational funders and has also gained their support to assist us to bring and host  Americarna in Waitara on the 10th Anniversary of the Americarna event.

‘Turn Key Civil’ Director, Brian Rose is supporting the Americarna event with his team by developing and implementing the Traffic Management Plan, which is a major logistical plan, for which we are grateful.

Local Waitara Trucking Company Q Transport are kindly supplying the staging for our entertainment area at the Americarna event.

We have many residents and clubs from Waitara who are assisting to make all the events in February the very best they can be.

On behalf of the Waitara Alive Board, staff and volunteers have a great time at one or all of the February events and come back any time!
