Te Pōhue, Travellers Stop - Roadside Stories


State Highway 5, Te Pōhue, Napier

A Manatū Taonga audio guide to Te Pōhue. Check out the Ministry for Culture and Heritage's audio guide in the image carousel above.

Remote Te Pōhue, on the Napier--Taupō highway, was once on a Māori track cutting across the tribal boundaries of Ngāti Kahungunu and Ngāti Tūwharetoa -- two tribes that were in conflict for a period, then made peace. Around 1870 a coach road was cut through the dense forest, and a hotel was built at Te Pōhue for travellers.
