Mangatawa Papamoa Blocks Incorporation

Mangatawa Papamoa Blocks Incorporation (Mangatawa) is a Maori Incorporation that was formed on 27 May 1957. We currently have approximately 800 shareholders, with a total land holding of approximately 750 acres.

Since 1957 the main business activity had been farming and with the development of over 30 hectares of kiwifruit orchards occurring in more recent years.

Our History

Long, long ago, a whale and her baby swam into the Tauranga Harbour. They swam through the entrance, past Mauao (Mt Maunganui) and Te Moutere o Matakana to Te Papa (Tauranga).

They decided to venture further into the harbour, so they swam up past Te Papa and Matapihi toward Maungatapu. Once there, they found the water getting shallower, so they decided to return to deeper water. However, instead of swimming back out through the entrance, they turned and headed into the Rangataua arm of the harbour between Matapihi and Maungatapu.
