Kerikeri is a nationally rare example of a very intact cultural landscape, incorporating heritage sites such as Kororipo Pā, Kemp House and the Stone Store. It is an example of a modern interpretation of nineteenth century modes of living and interaction between cultures, through Ngāti Rēhia’s living village, Te Ahurea. This area is a national and international heritage destination and the site is included as a priority on the New Zealand list for nomination as a World Heritage Site.
