The Northland Firehouse Museum is the only one of its kind in New Zealand. Just off State Highway one on the tourist trail is a world wide attraction for fire buffs and the like.

This Far North Museum that began 30 years ago as a model collection has expanded and blossomed into an international attraction.

From March 1999 the first of many buildings and displays were build at Pukepoto Rd, Okaihau to house the growing memorabilia and model collection. The first full size engine arrived in 2000 which was kindly donated by the New Zealand Fire Service. From there donations started to flow in from all around the world.

The local schools and visitors from other organisations benefit from the fire safety education program held at the museum.

There is also a special display commemorating the first responders to 9/11 of the World Trade Centre bombing in America.

The Curator of the museum, Brian Denton, has a large pictorial collection of fire engine that have served throughout New Zealand and is the Author of the book 'Chariots For Fire'. A pictorial history of the New Zealand Fire Engine.

The museum buildings and memorabilia are owned by The Northland Firehouse Museum Trust. We as the Trustees of this non-profitable museum.

Donations over $100 will be acknowledged on our ‘WALL OF FAME’.

We appreciate your generous contribution to our cause.
