Protecting historical maritime in New Zealand.

The Hauraki Rail Trail's 'newest' attraction. The team at the Historical Martime Park partnered with the Hauraki District Council and the Provincial Growth Fund to get you out on the water.  The $1.5million development includes boat rides that can take you and your bike up river to Paeroa!  Several other boat options are also available.

Come and view maritime past, maritime history and displays of the region including Captain Cook / Northern Steam Ship Co. and our naval displays.

This museum is the home to a very important collection of maritime history relating  to the role that Paeroa played as a port for unloading mining machinery and equipment in the late 19th century when the goldfields of Waihi and Karangahake were being developed and mined. The vast amounts of gold that were gained from these goldfields were then shipped out of the area via these ports on site and the ports in town.
