Pipiriki is a settlement in New Zealand, on the east bank of the Whanganui River, due west of the town of Raetihi and 79 kilometres (49 mi) upriver from Whanganui; it was originally on the opposite bank.[1] It is the home of Ngāti Kura, a hapū of the Ngāti Ruanui iwi.[1] It is also the location of the Paraweka Marae of the hapū Ngāti Kurawhatia of the iwi Te Āti Haunui-a-Pāpārangi.[2]

In the 1840s Pipiriki was a large stockaded settlement, the second largest on the Whanganui River, consisting of eight pā with a total population of 250–300.[3] Wheat was a major crop from 1848 onward, and the water-powered Kaukore flour mill was built in 1854.[1] In 1865 three redoubts across the river were besieged for several weeks by Pai Mārire warriors.[1]

Pipiriki was an important part of the riverboat trade in the 1890s–1920s, marking a major stop for paddle steamers making the 11-hour journey from Whanganui.[4]

There are four marae in the Pipiriki area affiliated with local iwi and hapū:
