Bit Of History - Karitane, and indeed the greater Waikouaiti
/ Karitane area, is of significant
importance historically to both European and Maori alike. Karitane was a long time Maori settlement
with a large Pa standing on the Huriawa Peninsula, before the first Europeans arrived some 8 years
prior to the founding of Dunedin in 1848. Whaling was the main early European activity.
