Kerikeri History

Kerikeri is steeped in history. Founded around 1820, Kerikeri housed the first Mission Station in New Zealand. Some of New Zealands oldest buildings still stand and are a popular tourist spot. The first vines were planted here in 1819, and the first plough in New Zealand was used here in 1820. Today Kerikeri is Northlands largest city.
