Central Hawke’s Bay Settlers Museum

Museum in Central Hawke’s Bay

The interesting old Central Hawke’s Bay Settlers Museum in Waipawa has plenty of pioneer artefacts, old photos and a good specimen of a river waka (canoe). Look for the anchor of the ill-fated schooner Maroro out the front, which hit a reef then washed up on Porangahau Beach in 1927.
