Kaitaia is a town in the Far North District of New Zealand, at the base of the Aupouri Peninsula, about 160 km northwest of Whangarei. It is the last major settlement on State Highway 1.
The name Kaitaia means ample food, kai being the Māori word for food.
A busy farming town, it also supports vineyards, and fruit growing - especially avocados. Like most rural towns Kaitaia has its very own annual Agricultural & Pastoral Show, well over a hundred years old and one of the oldest in New Zealand. more
Its Maori and European history is long and rich - with a strong Dalmatian community harking back to the days of the gum digging boom. The surrounding areas are home to many skilled craftspeople working in wood, pottery, paint, glass, ceramics, flax, bone, and greenstone.
