page 43


Manaia is a small town in the centre of the famous Waimate Plains, one of the most fertile stretches of country in New Zealand, It is distant about ten miles from Hawera, whence it may be reached by coach every day. At the mouth of the Inaha stream, two miles from Manaia, are to be seen the huge outworks of one of the most celebrated old Maori strongholds in the Island—Waimate Pa. Four miles from Manaia is also the Ngutu-o-te-Manu Reserve, where the brave Von Tempsky's brilliant career was terminated. A" monument marks the spot where he felt, shot by Maoris.
