Kakatahi is located in New Zealand

Kakatahi is a New Zealand town located 50 kilometres (31 mi) from Wanganui, on State Highway 4 to Raetihi.[1] The once bustling roadworkers' camp is now closed and the introduction of private contractors has seen the community dwindle, with local families contributing to a school roll of only about a dozen in 2007.
