Pompallier Mission

Account profile image
Visitors to the Bay of Islands put Pompallier on their 'must see' list.

Pompallier, is the sole surviving building of the French Catholic mission headquarters to the Western Pacific. Not only a witness to 'The Birth of the Nation', Pompallier is also a uniquely French Provincial building that stands as witness to wider French influences in New Zealand and the Pacific.

As a visitor you will receive unique hands-on experiences in the working mission factory and hear the stories of the peoples who worked and lived through fascinating times of Treaty-making and subsequent war.
