- Puhoi is an historic community situated on the beautiful Puhoi River. Equally renowned for the Puhoi Cheese Company and the pub, Puhoi attracts weekend day-trippers from Auckland drawn to the relaxed and interesting atmosphere. Bohemian immigrants were the first to settle here in 1860 when Puhoi was isolated and necessarily a self-sufficient community. Before decent roads were cut over the coastal hills, communication was via coastal steamer. Today the pub, with a collection of artefacts and colourful characters, is the main draw as well as century-old churches and other early buildings. Canoeing on the Puhoi River is also a popular outing.
