A culturally significant place, Cape Reinga, or Rerenga Wairua as it is also known, is located at the top of the North Island. While it is not the most northern point of New Zealand, it is the most accessible with the road now sealed all the way.
Wild and spectacular, you can see the colliding of 2 oceans - the Tasman on the west and the Pacific on the east.
To Maori it is the place where the wairua (spirit) of our loved ones depart for their final journey.
