Tolaga Bay (Māori: Uawa) is both a bay and small town on the East Coast of New Zealand's North Island located 45 kilometres northeast of Gisborne and 30 kilometres south of Tokomaru Bay. The region around the bay is rugged and remote, and for many years the only access to the town was by boat. Because the bay is shallow, a long wharf – the second longest in New Zealand (600m) after the Tiwai Point wharf at Bluff (1,500m) – was built in the 1920s to accommodate visiting vessels. The last cargo ship to use the wharf loaded a cargo of maize in 1967.

  • Tolaga Bay est une petite ville et aussi le nom d’une baie de la région de Gisborne, sur l’Île du Nord de la Nouvelle-Zélande. Elle fut nommée Tolaga Bay par James Cook, mais est appelée localement Uawa. La région autour de la baie est accidentée et isolée. Ainsi, pendant des années, le seul moyen d’accéder à l’île était par bateau. Parce que la baie est peu profonde, un long quai (le plus long de Nouvelle-Zélande) fut construit pour accueillir les bateaux visiteurs. Deux rivières se jettent dans l’Océan Pacifique à Togala Bay : les rivières Waiau et . Une île de la baie fut appelée à l’origine Spöring par Cook d’après son assistant d’expédition le botaniste finlandais Herman Spöring. Cependant, aujourd’hui, l’île est appelée par son nom Maori : Pourewa.
