​​"Paengaroa is a hive of activity. We are proud to be home to a number of businesses, farms and orchards, which all contribute to our strong sense of community. There is so much to see and do here, it really is a good place to work, play, learn and stay."
Cindy Hill-Rennie, Paengaroa Community Association
