Otakou Marae

Harrington Point Road
Otakou, Otago
The Otakou Marae is a reminder of the country’s long Maori history. There was a settlement there in the 1831, when the Weller Brothers’ whaling station was established nearby. Today there is a carved meeting house, Tamatea, opened in 1946, and a church, opened in 1941 which, unusually, has “carvings” executed in concrete. Within the church is a fascinating small museum and behind it an historic cemetery.

The Church and hall (1941) were designed by Eric S C Miller.
