Waihau Bay

New Zealand: BoyWaihau Bay

Location

Set deep within the Maori tribal lands of Te Whanau-A-Apanui, Waihau Bay is a popular summer holiday spot for campers. Kiwi director Taika Waititi grew up in this community and has never forgotten his roots: The 2010 coming-of-age comedy-drama movie Boy is a hommage to his hometown.

The heart of the settlement is the post office which also functions as a store and a general meeting place for the locals.
