The little town of Karamea
In the 1900’s settlers were brought in from England to set up in Karamea. They arrived with nothing but their own luggage and clothes on their backs. They had to set up their own food supply and built their own houses. Now, Karamea is a pretty little town, with a very friendly atmosphere. We enjoyed a nights stay there and went to their local little museum, full of old clothes, old washing machines, vehicles, beds, wedding dresses and so much more, all from when the settlers arrived at the beginning of the 20th Century.
