Brokers Comments

This is a very nice country business to own with a good financial performance backing it. The current owners opened the business 5 plus years ago and it has been a rewarding exercise for them.

This is a chance for those that want to have a nice busy business, in the countryside but not too far away from a town centre and where else can one find the many hours of sunshine then in the Hawkes Bay.

Well worth taking a good look at this one - maybe on your next weekend drive.


Wairoa is a town in New Zealand's North Island. It is the northernmost town in the Hawke's Bay region, and is located on the northern shore of Hawke Bay at the mouth of the Wairoa River and to the west of Mahia Peninsula. It is 70 kilometres northeast of Napier, and a similar distance southwest of Gisborne.

Early settlement in the area included a whaling station and trading post, dealing largely in flax. Its initial name was Clyde, but this was changed largely to avoid confusion with Clive near Napier and Clyde in the South Island. The north part of the town is called North Clyde. The town rose to prominence during the New Zealand Wars, during which time it was a garrison town.

Wairoa is a manufacturing and farming service town. It is the seat of the Wairoa District Council. The Wairoa District covers the northern half of the bay's coast, and extends from Mahia Peninsula to Lake Waikaremoana, and south to the mouth of the Waikare River. It has a population of 8,481 inhabitants (2006 census)[1]. The District has a land area of 4,119.18 km² (1,590.42 sq mi).

Wairoa has one secondary school, Wairoa College[2].

Wairoa is situated on the SH2, which gives connections to Gisborne to the north east and Napier to the south west. Wairoa is connected to the Central North Island by SH38 which goes from Wai-O-Tapu via Murupara and Frasertown to Wairoa, and which connects to Rotorua via Te Urewera, and Lake Waikaremoana.
Wairoa District

Wairoa is the main town of Northern Hawkes Bay and is the gateway to Lake Waikaremoana, Mahia Peninsula and the wilderness of Te Urewera National Park. Wairoa in Maori means ‘Long Water’ and is located on the banks of the expansive Wairoa River, which provides an excellent and sheltered venue for water-skiing, jet boating and rowing. The town offers a pleasant, relaxed lifestyle, perfect for those who enjoy the outdoors.

Your first port of call should be the Wairoa i-SITE Visitor Centre on the corner of SH2 and Queen Street for maps and information about local attractions. These local attractions include the Portland Island Lighthouse, built on the island from solid kauri and used from 1878 to the mid-1950s. The lighthouse was moved to its present position in 1961. Kopu Pitiera Memorial Stone, opposite the library on the riverbank serves as a memorial to a turbulent period in Wairoa's history during the 1860s. Kopu was a major figure in the conflicts of the time. Wairoa was once a river port with wool, flax, fibre, meat and dairy products as the main exports of the area.

The Heritage Trail walk starts on Marine Parade and is abound with historic sites such as River Wharf, the most substantial remaining wharf of the export era and pretty picnic spots. After a long day walking, fishing or sightseeing visit the Morere Hot Springs on SH2, 40 minutes from Wairoa.
