The view is great

Unfortunately the mission was closed but the view from the Mission House was amazing. Shame it wasn't open but still worth the extra cycling effort to go up and look out.

Part of Twin Coast Cycle Trail
abr de 2019
If you are doing the Twin Coast Cycle Trail, make sure you include this as part of your journey. We completed the trail here and it was a welcome stop and rest, just to sit on the grassy hill and absorb the history... very comforting.

An important part of NZ history

We visited this lovely heritage building thinking we would be there about 1/2 an hour, but thanks to the awesome host we spent nearly 2 hours exploring the depth of the history of Horeke and the wider Hokianga, plus learnt more about the treaty signing process that was immensely educational.

Beautiful location

Māngungu Mission - 4th eldest surviving building in NZ and where the largest signing of the Treaty of Waitangi took place. The view from this site is incredible. Great place for a picnic lunch and the composting toilets were very clean. There is an old cemetry on site too. As with other Heritage NZ homes the guide had fascinating things to say about the history of the place - our teenagers were excited to find Hone Heke's signature on the copy of the treaty document laid out on the table that was originally used for the signing! Parts of the house are likely to undergo restoration at some stage. Not open as many hours as other historic homes but well worth a visit to this peaceful location.

This is an old Methodist Mission station.The old house is very interesting to visit. Run by Heritage New Zealand. This is the place where the largest gathering of chiefs met to sign the Treaty of Waitangi in February 1840.

On a mission to find my forebears

A really interesting visit, especially as some of my ancestors had been stationed there in the 1830-40s.
Helpful, informative guides - and the view up the Hokianga is amazing

The Story of Mary Bumby - 180 Years of Introducing the Black Bee to New Zealand
fev de 2019 • Amigos
Caught our local tourist boat the Ranui across to Mangungu Mission House this morning. Beautiful crossing with friends. This was to celebrate 180 years of Mary Bumby bringing 2 Skeps of the British Black Bee to New Zealand in 1839.

Mary also acted as host to Governor Hobson, Church missionaries and Ngapuhi chiefs who came to Mangungu to sign the Treaty of Waitangi on 12th February 1840.

We were entertained by a couple from Waiheke who told the story of Mary Bumby, and how she introduced the honey bee into the Hokianga in the far north of New Zealand. A wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning cruising the river and listening to Mary’s story of bees via the Ngahere Bee Club. Attending Church, walking around the the Mission grounds and the Mission House which now also incorporates the Cycle Trail.

Mary Bumby was the first person to bring the European honeybee to NZ. An amazing young woman who managed to keep the bees alive after months at sea.

Followed on from Waitangi. More than just a house as it added the pictures and possessions of those that lived there brought to life by our knowledgeable guide . A lovely setting.

Really interesting
dez de 2018 • Casais
This place wasn't originally on our itinerary and we only found about it from local literature but we were really glad we took the time to visit.

The mission house is the site of the third but largest signing of the Treaty and whilst it's rather out of the way it's in a great setting overlooking the estuary.

The site caretaker gave us loads of history and information. Unusually the house was moved to Auckland after the trading demise of the Northland area in the mid 1800s and the bought back to its original site in the 1970s. It contains lots of unique and original items, including a magnificent 200 year old Maori cloak.

A good way to spend an hour

Came here after visiting the Wairere Boulders nearby. Beautiful setting even on a cloudy day. Would have been great to have been able to look through the house but it was closed. Good info board down near the gate though.
