Home-Karitane landmarks

Truby King

It took less than a century for the Truby King nurses to become an iconic part of N.Z’s
In 2007 they had their 100th birthday!!!!

Nurses travelled by tractor to visit patients but could use a delivery van if they were in a hurry!

If you come to Karitane you could see my house on Huriawa Peninsula, It was the first nursing home in Karitane.
