Established 1844.
This convent, church and marae have been beautifully restored. Well worth a look.
On Convent Road which starts off as Te Rauparaha Road. Must be some connection to Te Rauparaha (famous Maori chief) in this area because I walked past a monument to him.
But I was after the convent cemetery on the little hill next to it. Looking for the graves of my ancestors.
