About Our Marae

Hongoeka is an active Ngāti Toa marae, with a wharenui (meeting house) named Te Heke-mai-raro (opened 1997),  The Marae is located in Plimmerton, north of Porirua, Wellington, New Zealand

It is believed Hongoeka has likely been occupied by Ngāti Toa since the 1820's (possibly since the battle of Waiorua in 1824, which secured Te Rauparaha's position on Kapiti Island). Hongoeka was considered desirable for cultivation and for the abundance of kai moana (seafood) found on nearby shores. Read more about Hongoeka in our About Us section.
