Koitiata Begins

Koitiata Begins

At the beginning of 1917 there was a Koitiata Domain but no surveyed village. The authorisation was given by Government later in 1917 “for the erection of seaside cottages on Koitiata Domain”. The documents, news clippings, and maps, relative to the establishment of Koitiata Township, can be accessed below.
