Well sited on the inner reaches of the Bay of Islands, Paihia has a rich history. The Church Missionary Society established a mission in 1823, and set up New Zealand’s first printing press in 1835. The mission closed in 1850 and by 1890 there were a mere handful of houses and a church in the settlement. The holiday town dates from the 1930s. The restored Treaty House at nearby Waitangi was an attraction, and a road built from Ōpua made the town much easier to reach from the south.
Meaning of the place name ‘Paihia’: The popular belief is that when selecting a locality for a CMS mission station, the Rev. Henry Williams was impressed by the tranquil bay and exclaimed in a mixture of Maori and English, ‘Pai here!’, meaning ‘Good here’. This explanation seems too good to be true. Originally called Marsdens Vale.
