Growing Up in Onerahi - Growing up in Onerahi
I have lived in Onerahi for over thirty years, I grew up in Onerahi during the 80's. I attended Raurimu Avenue Primary School, the Principal of the time was Ian Babe. During the school holidays my friends and I used to love to play on the old wreck on the beach at the end of Pah Road. We would build forts in the mangroves near the Waimahanga Walkway and we would go fishing off the Onerahi Wharf.
The Pah Road end of Beach Road were mostly empty paddocks for horse grazing back then. These days there are less of those large half acre properties, but I feel today Onerahi has grown into a beautiful family seaside community. Now that I'm a father I am happy to give my daughters a chance to play in this beautiful seaside playground. It's a great place to visit and an awesome place to raise a family.
