The statue is fascinating and the surrounding rocks and bay and nearby cave are fun to explore and shoot images.

I went to see her on a stunning sunny day, so got good pictures. She is situated at the Headlands in Whaka, a good walk from town or a drive to excellent parking spaces.

A favourite place for me, to watch the boats enter the harbour. Lots of people out and about, walking, eating, fishing and enjoying the sunshine.

Simple to see - at end of Muriwai Drive - park the car and have a walk around - opposite shore has the rock with the statue commemorating Wairaka, the daughter of Toroa the captain of the waka that came to Whakatane. It is also a memorial to the wife of Sir William Sullivan. It's not exciting but is a bit of historical significance and it's a nice walk around the area - especially watching any boats coming through the heads - the channel is quite narrow. Worth a visit
