Welcome

Puhoi is situated on the beautiful Puhoi River and is one of New Zealand’s two ethnic  historic villages. Situated 40km north of Auckland, and the gateway to Matakana Coast & Country. Settled in 1863 by immigrants from Bohemia, an area which is now the Czech Republic.

Puhoi retains much of its Bohemian atmosphere and culture, with vibrant contributions from residents from across the world. The story of it’s settlement is well documented by the Heritage Museum.

The Puhoi Pub, with eclectic artifacts and colourful characters, is not to be missed, as well as the century-old Church,the Town Library , and our Hall
