1825 in New Zealand


Regal and viceregal[edit]


  • Ngāpuhi chief Hongi Hika's campaign against Ngāti Whātua ends with the battle Te Ika a Ranganui on the Kaiwaka River (approximately 105 km north of modern downtown Auckland). Hongi’s eldest son is killed in the battle. The battle is a massive defeat for Ngāti Whatua and most survivors flee south leaving Tāmaki-makau-rau (Auckland) almost deserted until the arrival of Governor William Hobson in 1840. Hongi later pursues the Ngāti Whatua survivors into the Waikato.[2][3][4]
