Our Heritage

Geraldine is also known as ‘Rau Kāpuka’ meaning a hundred Kāpuka trees.

Before the area was settled by the early runholders, Raukāpuka was mainly forest and swampland – a popular place for gathering food.

The people of Arowhenua had this saying – ‘Te whenua i haroa e Te Kāhu’ - “The land that is surrounded by bush and swamp, that is watched over by the hawk.”
