Things To Do

Inland is the Wairere Boulder Valley, which is worth a look at for its truly unusual basalt boulders. There are fantastic coffee shops where you can sit down and relax with a cappuccino, kayak in the Hokianga Harbour or simply take it easy and take in the scenery at the far-north pace.
