Whangamomona Accommodation

Yours hosts at Whangamomona Accommodation are Pork and Ceri, we are farming sheep and beef in the Republic along with the bnbs in Whangamomona village. We have 4 children and 2 grandchildren. It was Porks idea to “give the Mrs a house in town and give her something to do off farm”. It’s all good as we love it. Getting the houses ready for guests is a favourite part of looking after them. We have been running for 5 years with the Butcher Shop finally ready for the 2017 season.

Whangamomona Republic Day


On the 1st of November 1989 Whangamomona declared its independence as an objection to a map revision moving the area to the Manawatu-Wanganui Region, rather than its preferred Taranaki region.  There is a biannual celebration held in January to commemorate the independence. The event attracts large crowds for a fun filled day of action, Pork on possum skinning, Sheep shearing, Eel counting and Whip cracking. With the main event of the day being the Elections. Our current President is our good friend John Herlihy and he does a great job for our community.
