Below is a list of 100+ residents of Karangahake, who signed an 
     unsuccessful  petition to have the goldmining township at the  foot 
    of the Coromandel peninsular declared  a borough in 1907. 

A number of Australian families went here after the gold ran out in some 
of the Australian fields - my Grandparents came from Nundle/Hanging 
                                          Rock, NSW in 1905.
