Nau mau, haere mai ki Te Kāhui Maru,
Te Iwi o Maruwharanui

Located within the natural flora and fauna of Tarata, adjacent to the shimmering hue of the Waitara river, is a marae local Iwi and Hapu call Te Upoko o te Whenua.

Akin to the Ngāti Maru Iwi, the marae has over a generation become the foundation of many whānau, most of whom have partaken in the development of what it stands for today, “a place they can call home”.
