Also known as:  Kororareka Cemetery

  • Long Beach Road, Russell, Far North District, Northland, New Zealand

Russell, formerly known as Kororareka, was the first permanent European settlement and sea port in New Zealand
It is situated in the Bay of Islands in the far north of the North Island

Kororareka was part of the Port of Russell and after Russell (Okiato) became virtually deserted, Kororareka gradually became known as Russell also. In January 1844 Governor Robert FitzRoy officially designated Kororareka as part of the township of Russell. Today the name Russell applies only to Kororareka while the former capital is known either by its original name of Okiato or as Old Russell
