Quick Description: There isn't much to Athens, New Zealand (known as Atene in native Maori), but I find it quite spectacular that in the span of about 30 km on Whanganui River Road you can travel from Jerusalem, through London to Athens.

Long Description:
There isn't much to Athens, New Zealand (known as Atene in native Maori), but I find it quite spectacular that in the span of about 30 km on Whanganui River Road you can travel from Jerusalem, through London to Athens.

The small meeting house of Ngati Hineoneone is all that remains of a former kainga (Maori village).
