Young Nick's Head / Te Kuri-a-Pāoa
Young Nick’s Head – or so it was named by Captain Cook was formerly known to Maori as Te Kuri-a-Pāoa - meaning the Dog of Pāoa.
“Who was Pāoa you may ask?” - Good question - Pāoa was the Captain of the Horouta Waka… which arrived way, way, way, before Captain Cook.
