‘Weaving experiences through people and place’
Welcome to the Whaingaroa/Raglan iHub, the one stop destination for all you need to know about this beautiful place.
We are a community defined by our natural rugged landscape, our unique connection from shoreline to mountain top, inland to our gentle rolling hills, our daily lives in synchronicity with the ebb and flow of the tides and changing seasons.
This place is made up of our coastal township of Raglan and our rural communities. We are diverse, we value hapu and iwi, we are people friendly with a strong community spirit grounded firmly in taking care of each other and our environment.
We celebrate creativity; arts, music, dance, theatre, drama, education, food and innovation.
We are renowned for our world class surf breaks, however, Raglan has so much more to offer, whether you’re seeking that perfect wave, exploring our eclectic shops, browsing our numerous galleries, learning our rich history, or simply enjoying a coffee, Raglan has something just for you.
We warmly welcome you here to this place that we are blessed to call home, we ask that you love and care for our place, as we do and in return, we will take care of you.
Nau mai, haere mai ki Whaingaroa
We don’t know everything, but we know a lot 🙂
