In nearby Hukuwai Domain lives a 2000 year old sprawling pururi tree. To stand before it is to be filled with awe, admiration and wonder.
Named Taketakerau by early Maori, it also once served as a burial tree, where the bones of the distinguished dead were interred, adding to its mystique.
Just a short 6km drive or bike ride from The Wharf Hub. Many travel from overseas just to stand before this tree. Perhaps one of the oldest living things you might see in our own short lifespans.
