Bird Watching along the Seabird Coast

Seabird Coast, Coromandel, New Zealand
Seabird Coast
Coromandel, New Zealand

The Seabird Coast is located along the western shores of the Firth of Thames, in the Coromandel region of New Zealand.

Nestled between the Hunua Forest Park and the stunning Coromandel Ranges, the Seabird Coast extends from Tawhitokino Regional Park near Kawakawa Bay (southeast of Auckland), through the Chenier plain of ancient shellbanks around Miranda and Kaiaua, to the vast mangrove forest of the Firth's southern border.

The Seabird Coast is a popular attraction, home to an abundance of diverse flora and fauna. Up to 20,000 migratory seabirds and waders can be observed and photographed during peak periods along the Seabird Coast. Many bird spotting posts are placed around the beach for bird watching.

The Miranda Shorebird Centre is a fascinating destination for bird watchers from all over the world. The long stretch of foreshore in Miranda is an ideal family picnic stop.

The rich marine life of the Seabird Coast includes:

  • Mussels
  • Oysters
  • Scallops
  • Cockles
  • Crabs
  • Fish such as snapper, flounder, kahawai, trevally, eels, whitebait and sprats
  • Whales
  • Dolphins
  • Orcas
