An important service centre for the Tararua region, Dannevirke is a pleasant country town with a strong Scandinavian heritage.
Dannevirke is known for its Scandinavian heritage, which dates back to 1872 when 21 Danish and Norwegian families arrived to settle the district. The town’s cemeteries are of considerable importance historically, and the settlers’ cemetery attracts many visitors. The Gallery of History provides an in depth look at Dannevirke from the 1870s onward. The town also has a proud Maori history, and at Makirikiri Marae you can admire the carvings at the Aotea meeting house. Dannevirke’s Fantasy Cave is a must for families with young children; the Viking Ship playground in the domain is another family attraction.
Functional facts: Approx. population 5600, information centre, range of shops and services.
