The Rawene Post Office
The Rawene Post Office, which is the chief distributing and transmitting office in Hokianga, was opened in 1875. It is five miles from Kohukohu and Omanaia post offices, respectively. Mails arrive weekly on Tuesday at nine p.m. and are despatched at midnight on Wednesday. The postmaster's private quarters adjoin the offices and form a pleasant residence.
