Longest place name sign

 

There is a small roadside rest area  along Wimbledon Rd that boasts the longest place name in the world. 

 

Of course there is a nice story from Maori legend to go along with it. Other than that, it's just a small roadside rest area with nice view.

 

If you're self-contained, you could probably park overnight should you want to.
