Te Matai a Pohe- Whangarei's new Bridge.
From old to new vehicles, quirky to business class clubs, bands and marching groups, this has been one of the best attended and organised events for many years around Whangarei.
It has been a celebration not just of a means of transport, but as part of the development of Whangarei as a hub of industry and tourism in Northland.
Perhaps, as Mayor Cutforth put it, now Whangarei can be known as "The city of Bridges".
Auckland is the commercial capital of New Zealand but anything to the North can be considered "Northland". Preferred destination for tourists and workers alike when surf, sand, diving and fishing is involved. It has a solid rural base of Dary, Beef and Sheep as well as horticulture and wineyards. Whangarei is the regional city on the way up to Cape Reinga at the northernmost tip of the island.
