Waikari marae is located in Matapihi, in the Tauranga region, and its principal hapu is Ngāti Tapu. Waikari marae is part of the Ngāi Te Rangi tribal collective and of the Mataatua waka. 

The marae consists of the wharenui Tapukino (built in 1881), and the wharekai Kahumoeangi. In 1881, Ngāti Tapu built the first Tapukino wharenui at Te Mania, and in 1901, the hapu decided to relocate the marae to Waikari where it stands to this day.
