Okiwi Bay is located within "Croisilles harbour" (Whangarae), and was named after Dumont D'Urville's uncle the Abbot of Croisilles in 1827. An area rich in history - D'Urville also passed through and named "French Pass" (Te Aumiti) which is about a one hour drive from Okiwi Bay. Many of New Zealand's early explorers came here, and it was visited by whalers & sealers, followed by some of New Zealand's Early European settlers.
