After Lake Matheson on the West Coast, Mathesons Bay near Leigh north of Auckland may be the best-known Matheson place name in New Zealand.  You can read more here about who this attractive bay was named after; hard-working, brave settlers.

You can serve your friends olive oil with the Matheson name on!  In a short road called Matheson Way, near Waiau Pa south of Auckland, Matheson Estate grows olives and makes extra virgin olive oil.
