Auckland's Karaka Bays

There are three Karaka Bays in the Auckland Region that I know of (comments, please, if I've missed others) -- and fortunately, all of them have webpages featuring their history. Only the first two of the list below still retain the original name.

Karaka Bay, in the eastern suburbs of Auckland City, by Tony Watkins.

Karaka Bay, Great Barrier Island, by Margaret Peacocke.

Karaka Bay, now Green Bay, in West Auckland (Waitakere City), by Nigel Brookes.

I would add Wellington's Karaka Bay, but I can't find a specific historical reference page to it online. See next post, however.
