Doubtless Bay Scenic Highlights Overview
A popular holiday destination, Doubtless Bay is known for its idyllic coastal landscapes.
Take time to explore Butler Point, located across the harbour from Mangonui village. Here you will find a whaling museum and historic Captain Butler's House. You will also find a Heritage Trail which begins at the old Mangonui Courthouse (with its arts and crafts exhibition) and passes many historic buildings and sites.
Further afield you can explore the Ancient Kauri Kingdom and Gumdiggers Park located north of Awanui. Southwest of Doubtless Bay is the town of Kaitaia, attractions include a local museum.
Cape Reinga and Ninety Mile Beach, As Far As You Can Go!
For a day trip, travel up the Far North peninsula and discover a barely inhabited area of New Zealand.
Cape Reinga is the northernmost point of New Zealand. Walk up to the lighthouse and take in expansive panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea as they merge. From this unique vantage point you can also sight the famous pohutukawa tree where, it is said, Maori spirits depart on their journey to their final resting place.
A trip to the Cape would not be complete without making the journey up or back along spectacular Ninety Mile Beach, regarded by many to be one of the best surfcasting beaches in the world.
If you take a coach tour you will enter or exit the beach at Te Paki Stream, where many visitors stop to sand-surf the giant sand dunes that signal access to the beach. You might be lucky enough to sight some of the many wild horses that live in the area. You should also try to see the Aupouri Forest and feel the delicious silicone sands of Rarawa Beach between your toes.
