Rohe introduction and map
Waikato-Waiariki is a combination of three former Te Puni Kōkiri regions Waikato, Te Arawa and Te Moana ā Toi.
It extends from the Bombay Hills and Port Waikato in the north, along the western coastline south to Mokau, eastward embracing the King Country, through to the Kaimai Ranges, the Hauraki plains and returning northwards to the Coromandel Peninsula.
Moving east across the Mamaku and Kaimai ranges, it encompasses the Bay of Plenty through to Lotten Point – the furthest point East.
The southern boundaries are at Titiraupenga (Pureora-Western Bays, Taupō) to Titi o Kura (the peak at the beginning of Kaweka Range near Te Haroto, Napier/Taupō Highway).
The Rohe map defines rohe boundaries. It differs from the Iwi maps which provide population densities.
For these profiles, New Zealand is divided into the following six Rohe areas - Ikaroa-Rāwhiti, Tāmaki Makaurau, Waikato-Waiariki, Te Tai Hauāuru, Te Taitokerau and Te Waipounamu.
