Momona



Momona is a small town on the Taieri Plain in New Zealand's South Island. Momona School was established in 1899 and closed in 2004. The Henley Co-operative Dairy Company, established in nearby Henley, moved their cheese factory here, and was closed in the 1980s.

Momona is the location of Dunedin International Airport. With the establishment of the airport, an extra township was built for families of airport staff, its three streets being named after RNZAF airmen who received the Victoria Cross: James Allen Ward, Lloyd Trigg, and Leonard Henry Trent.[1]

New Zealand's lowest point, at 2 metres (6.6 ft) below sea level, is located on Kirk's Drain Road just to the southwest of Momona. The road was named after John Kirk, a nearby resident, who was the grandfather of the Rt. Hon. Norman Kirk, Prime Minister of New Zealand from 1972 to 1974.
