North Island - New Zealand

New Zealand facts & history in brief               New Zealand Map

Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Taipa-Mangonui is one name given to a string of small resort settlements in the far north of New Zealand's North Auckland Peninsula, close to the base of the Aupouri Peninsula.
The resorts of Taipa, Cable Bay, Cooper's Beach, and Mangonui, all of which lie along the coast of Doubtless Bay, are so close together that they have run together to form one larger settlement with a combined population of 1569 (2006 census).

The "miniature conurbation" lies 150 kilometres by road northwest of Whangarei (though only 100 kilometres as the crow flies), and 20 kilometres northeast of Kaitaia.
It is thus the northernmost centre in New Zealand with a population of above 1000, even though it is nearly 100 kilometres southeast of the northernmost tip of the North Island.

Taipa Area School is a composite (years 1-15) school with a roll of 464.
The school claims to be the only one in New Zealand to have a team of students who are qualified surf lifeguards patrolling beach activities during terms 1 and 4.

Mangonui School is a contributing primary (years 1-6) school with a roll of 151.
The school opened in 1857, and one of the original buildings is still in use as the school library.

Both schools are coeducational and have a decile rating of 3.
