Motuaka Street:

Motuaka Street:

Now spelt with an -e. It still runs from Vanguard Street to the foot of the Grampians although the 1842 surveyors did not regard these hills as any barrier and took the road with one or two zig-zags to the top where it joined the Grampian Road.

The name Motueka was brought to New Zealand by the Maoris and originally it is supposed to come from—motu, a clump of trees, weka—the bird.
