Ngatea


 

Nestled on the banks of the Piako River along State Highway 2, Ngatea is the central hub of the Hauraki Plains and has an array of shops, eating establishments and accommodation on offer. You can also visit the picturesque water gardens or Pioneer Park, where you can take a moment to relax while the kids maket the most of the playground and skatepark. 

Ngatea is a variation on the old Maori name Nga Ate, meaning the heart or centre. European settlers first used the name 'The Orchard' after the Maori-grown peach and quince trees in the area. 

As the largest settlement in the Hauraki Plains, Ngatea is a service town for the farming area of the Hauraki Plains. Today it continues to be the central business hub of the region, with a large number of retail outlets, eateries, accommodation and professional services.
