  • Maori and Business

    ...as one settler commented:
    “… they were remarkably shrewd at driving a bargain, had a very appreciative opinion of their commodities, and a critical knowledge of the value of the ‘utu’ (money) and the goods taken in exchange”.
    Written by: Hilary and John Mitchell
  • Tobacco

    The growth and production of tobacco brought wealth, jobs and growth to Motueka and was integral to the social fabric of the district for more than 70 years. There will be a permanent exhibition on tobacco at the Motueka Museum from mid-2009.
  • Shaky Ground

    17 June 1929 - Nonie Rodgers...grabbed her baby and crawled to the front door... I looked up to see the hills rocking like jelly on a plate and to my relief, saw Dr McLean staggering up the road....

  • First Tasman Flight

    The first flight across the Tasman.
    On 11 September 1928 the Australian airman Charles Kingsford Smith and his crew of three crossed the Tasman Sea by air. It was the first time anyone had done this. They flew from Sydney to Christchurch in a three-engined Fokker Southern Cross; their journey took 14 hours and 25 minutes.

  • Ngatimoti War Memorial

    In June 1920 a Ladies Committee was formed by Mrs C.B.Brereton expressly to organise the building of a war memorial. The loss of the young men listed below would have represented a devestating blow to the people of this area, but the continued strength of community spirit was shown in the way that they all rallied to the support of the memorial project - a project of great personal significance for those families whose boys graves were so far from home.

  • Pupu Springs

    The freshwater springs are the largest cold water springs in the Southern Hemisphere2 and second only to the Antarctica’s Weddell Sea in clarity. Every second between 10,000 and 14,0003 litres of water are released from the springs, whose depth has never been accurately determined.
