Dargaville, the Kumara Capital of New Zealand, is a rural town with a population of 4,800 people. Steeped in history and nestled beside the Northern Wairoa River, Kauri logging, gum digging, shipbuilding and shipwrecks are the heritage of this characterful Town. Each year Dargaville hosts such events as the Northland Agricultural Field Days, and several major surfcasting and trout-fishing competitions.
