Cemetery notes and/or description:
PIOPIO (commonly sounded as pew pew), is a rural King Country community, a small town in the Waitomo District.

Situated on State Highway 3 approximately 23km from Te Kuiti and 100km south of Hamilton, Waikato

It is thought to be named after the exrinct Native Thrush, that were, until recently, considered part of an endemic family, Turnagridae, but due to mitochondrial DNA testing they are now treated as part of the birds–of–paradise and bowerbird assemblage, perhaps most closely related to the catbirds of eastern Australia.


All Streets in Piopio are named after NZ native birds
