Waiaua to Kauri Cliffs
By Lorelei Hayes

The Story of a Northland Sheep Station 1833-2003

Waiaua to Kauri Cliffs is a lively, well researched account of Tepene (previously known as Waiaua, a farm situated on the east coast of Northland between Whangaroa and the Bay of Islands) and the surrounding area, from the 1830s when the first European settlers arrived to the present day.

It was a tough and lonely life for these pioneer families. Many of the men worked long and hard in the bush as well as clearing the land for building their homes and for farming. For the women it was perhaps even more difficult. With families to feed and care for, and little or no medical assistance to help with sickness and injury, they lived in primitive and harsh conditions. Throughout the early years there were also some tense moments as the settlers developed ongoing relationships with local Maori.

Lorelei Hayes writes movingly of the struggles through the Depression years, the poverty experienced by those who were unemployed in the area, and the resourcefulness and skills needed to survive. She goes on to include her own experience of farming at Tepene until it was sold.
