Te Kūiti

Te Kūiti

Te Kūiti is an attractive town in the heart of the King Country. It started off as a railway town in the 1880s, then morphed to being a small rural service town. But it has adapted well to tourists with several cool features near the town centre and railway station that provide reminders of its history. These include a statue of Colin Meads (a very famous All Black of the 1960s), a huge monument to sheep shearing and a beautiful small pavilion commemorating the history of the town.

The town sits just above the junction of State Highway 3 to Taranaki or State Highway 4 to Taumarunui. From there, connect with Highway 43, also known as the Forgotten World Highway.
