North Island

New Zealand facts & history in brief       New Zealand Map


is a service town on the banks of the Waikato River, near the Taupiri Range, in Waikato County, between Auckland and Hamilton on State Highway 1.
One of the first European settler was Benjamin Ashwell, an Anglican missionary, around the 1930s.
Huntly became a town district in 1908 and a borough in 1931.
The town was named after a Scotch town in Aberdeenshire, Alexander Henry's original home town, who owned the land the town now sits on. Huntly is in the middle of a coalmining area.
The commercial coalmining begin in 1876, and today it is used for the New Zealand Steelmill at Glenbrook and the Huntly 'solid-fuel' power station on the western bank of the Waikato river.
The station can run on gas or coal and used mainly during peak consumption.
