Northland West Coast
The west coast of Northland is a place of wild beaches, spectacular coastline and peaceful forests. It's exposed to almost continuous onshore oceanic swells, allowing only a few hardy species of shellfish, such as tuatua and toheroa, to survive.
Beach and dunefield habitats are home to several endangered plant species, while beaches are important as roosting, nesting and feeding areas for coastal birds such as the threatened New Zealand dotterel and the rare variable oystercatcher. more
The west coast has two harbours - Kaipara & Hokianga.
These harbours, as well as numerous lakes and swamps, are valuable feeding grounds for migratory waders such as plovers, godwits, turnstones and tattlers.
Orongo Point offers the ultimate getaway experience with 200 acres of private farmland and 3 kms of pristine forested coastline to explore, with access to its own private and magnificent white sandy beach. Orongo Point bach provides simple kiwi style bach accommodation and is the perfect base to explore this amazing part of New Zealand. Pets are welcome.
Visit Tane Mahuta in the Waipoua Forest, New Zealand's largest known living kauri tree. This short walk leads you under cooling shade of the forest canopy to the majestic Tane Mahuta, New Zealand's largest living kauri tree.
Ninety minutes north of Auckland, you will discover the beautiful, rugged and unspoilt beauty of the Kauri Coast. Along this stretch of coast in Northland, you can relax and spend time at some wild surf beaches, crystal clear lakes, spectacular sand dunes and view giant kauri forests.
