That was before we visited there. This town has places well worth a visit as you find out when you allow yourself time to look around.

TARANAKI REDOUBTS, 1879–81. Mr.
James Robson, of Wellington (late of “Whitiora,” Stratford), who is a pioneer of sawmilling in the Upper Hutt Valley and in Taranaki, thus describes the later critical period on the Taranaki frontier and the building of the redoubt at Normanby settlement:— “I started the first sawmill at Ketemarae soon after the close of Titokowaru's war. We built the mill about a mile and a half from the present site of Normanby Township, or Matariki, as it was known by the natives; the large Maori kainga of Ketemarae was about a mile from the page 516 present township. We supplied the timber for many places about Ketemarae and on the Waimate Plains, and amongst them was the Manaia Redoubt. At one time we had seventy bullocks in the teams carting sawn timber around the district. Hawera First World War memorial.
Turuturumōkai NZ Wars memorial. This memorial stands on the remains of Turuturumōkai Redoubt.
It is located off Turuturu Road, immediately east of Tāwhiti Stream, 2 km north-east of the south Taranaki town of Hāwera. The Turuturumōkai memorial records the dramatic events of 12 July 1868. On a frosty morning, a small garrison fought desperately to hold off a vastly superior Māori force. The raid was orchestrated by Ngāti Ruanui’s military leader, Riwha Tītokowaru. Tītokowaru’s strategy during his war of 1868–9 was one of controlled provocation.
Turuturumōkai was first established by the 18th (Royal Irish) Regiment in November 1866. The raid was Tītokowaru’s first attack on a military redoubt in this campaign. The garrison was taken completely by surprise. At 7 a.m. The bodies of the 10 troops killed at Turuturumōkai were buried at Waihī Cemetery. Tītokowaru’s strategy now came to fruition.

The small town of Hawera, which means 'burnt place' in te reo Maori, was built on a plain confiscated from Ngati Ruanui by the Crown in the 1860s. One option was the water tower, a favoured means of increasing water pressure in towns built on flat land. Cameron incorporated two separate tanks into the new water tower's design. The tower proved to be a major attraction for visitors to Hawera and became a symbol for the town's identity. As Hawera's population increased, the demand for water grew.
