Auckland & Northland Route PlannerRuawai has declared itself as the "Kumara capital of the world", as it is renowned for the great kumara crops. The township of Ruawai was named in recognition of the location beside Two Waters, where the waters of the Northern Wairoa River flow into the Kaipara Harbour. The rich flood plains of the Ruawai Flats are below sea level and the town is protected by a system of drains, canals, flood gates and stop banks.
