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.

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.
