Well according to One News, it must be in Auckland.

 

 

I always thought it was Waikato's northern pearl.

Yup, it's in the Waikato region.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

It's the home of mmm bacon :) :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Well, of course I know perfectly well where Pokeno is. I used to live in nearby Tuakau, and had to drive through Pokeno to get to SH2.

 

I was just watching the news going on about the Auckland Unitary Plan and that image came up, and I was like "Hang on, isn't that Pokeno?"

 

@coffeebaron so right about the bacon. And ice-creams.

I miss Pokeno Bacon.. when I lived in Hamiltron, no trip to Dorkland was complete with stopping for a Pokeno Bacon toasted sammich.





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Where is Pokeno?

Since the highway reconstruction it exists only in the twilight zone. I saw it many moons ago. It was a cold and stormy night.
