Looking down the Otamatea River to Batley

Batley, situated on the Otamatea River, an arm of the Kaipara Harbour, was settled in 1862 and was a port on the steamer route. The house has been a store, post office, boarding house and hotel and is registered with the New Zealand Historic Place Trust. The Kaipara Harbour, the largest harbour in the southern hemisphere, covers about 95,000 hectares at high water, but only about half that at low tide. (Printed in NZ).

      Thank you! As is yours. About to add a story about a baby heron that fell from its nest – wet, frozen. Brought it back to life. Love Rae
