Hi Elaine our little Karamea community rocks big time . We had our winter solstace get together at the Oparara reserve last weekend and it was as magical as ever even though it was on a smaller scale than usuall . We have a summer music festervile that just keeps getter better with people travling along way  to be part of it . KSM Karamea sound machine is the group of locals that put it on and do a great job of it .      .     This was the 2014 event .   If you get here 1 of the things you will notice is that most locals wave to each other when they are driving by , a habit you soon forget when you get to a city as it just seems weird . If you take your dog to a beach 9 times out of 10 you will be the only person there which is quite cool . Dick heads are few and far between so thats another bonus of living here . Lack of employment is the bigest hurdel living here but like anywhere if you want to work you will find something , just dont expect to get rich . Just by living here you can save money by not having many places to shop so those impulse buys dont happen unless your shoping online . Do you know any1 here at all ? . Hope this has helped and good luck .

Hi Elaine,

I've lived in Karamea for 12 years and absolutely LOVE it. It's a paradise. Scenicaly beautiful, fresh clean air, mild climate, great community and good services and facilities. I have a young family and wouldn't want them to grow up anywhere else. 

Quite a few people from the North Island have moved here and enjoy the slower, more congenial lifestyle. We also have a dog and he likes it here too.

I look forward to meeting you sometime,

Regards from Sunny Karamea,

Paul, Sanae, Diva and Winston Murray.
