Sharing this lovely building with the local library - this info centre provided a comprehensive range of travelling info options. Very helpful knowledgeable staff with a good range of gifts and souvenirs for purchase.

We took a side trip to see this on advice of one of our travel mates. Well worth the stop. Lovely presentation by mural of Maori culture. Very glad we took her advice.

I recommend a stop here to all travellers going through Kaitaia. This place has everything you could need. You must stop here engender if it’s only for a quick break from driving. This place is definitely a real jewel in the northland crown.

Its nothing special, its an information center. Admittedly, Kiatia is about as removed from New York or London as you can get and there's no Metropolitan Museum within walking distance but it's still just an information centre. Get your maps and tea towels and move...More

A great place to have a coffee and relax. This cafe is part of the public library/council service center. Coffee is great and the Orange Mini Cake is delicious. And I say this as a professional baker. Do I need to say more?
