Maungakaramea isn't very big. The school had, in 2000, a roll of 103. But it has a croquet club! It also has a petrol station/shop. I found three churches: Anglican, Roman Catholic and something I have never seen before: an Undemonitional Church.
All Saints Anglican Church
St Peter and St Pauls Roman Catholic Church: dedicated in 1902
Every village has it's Memorial or War Memorial Hall: This one is grander than many.
You can buy your veg at the roadside
And every village has it's current fire danger status
