Waiharara is one of the centers of Croation settlement north of Kaitaia, on the Aupouri Peninsula of the North Island of New Zealand. There are many names on letterboxes ending in 'ich', and a strong cultural influence. These people originally arrived in New Zealand to dig Kauri Gum, but stayed to create farms and establish businesses. They were and still are for the most part devout Catholics, and the layout of the cemetery reflects this - a 'them and us' definition that is repeated in the next cemetery south (Waipapakauri).
The cemetery itself is quite well kept although the location does not permit the establishing of sophisticated lawns.

There is an earlier cemetery. It can be found by continuing down the Kaimaumau road about one kilometer and looking to the left. It is currently (2006) signposted alongside the roadside 'children on road' sign. A short walk into the trees reveals the plaque shown on the left.
This site was the original township of Waiharara, and at the junction of the Kaimaumau and far north roads. Kaimaumau was a substantial port at the time, with a steamer wharf and a school and pool hall. It provided access to the inner portions of the immense sandspit that the peninsula is really made of.
The names on the plaque have been included in the main cemetery listing, with a notation regarding where buried.
