The closeness of Kororipo Pa to two of New Zealand's oldest buildings, Kemp House and the Stone Store, speaks to the relationships forged by Māori and Pakeha in the early 19th century, prior to the signing of Te Tiriti O Waitangi.

Kerikeri Mission Station, established in 1819, at Kororipo, is one of the first places in New Zealand where Māori invited Pakeha to live among them. Built under the protection of local Māori chiefs who were keen to harness the trade and technology of Europe, Kerikeri Mission Station grew amidst a backdrop of tribal warfare and ever-increasing visits from foreign ships.

Explore the scenery, soak up the history and discover fascinating stories with knowledgeable guides at this nationally significant site.
