"Hokianga" Northland Tip by keeweechic

Northland, New Zealand: 31 reviews and 52 photos


Hokianga is not as developed as the Bay of Islands but it is a tranquil and relaxing setting with much to enjoy from the rugged mountains to the golden sand dunes. There are many wonderful walking trails and some great views can be sought around the south head. Hokianga is know for the kauri forests, which are found on the Twin Coast Discovery Highway. Some of the biggest Kauri trees, which are known as Tane Mahuta, Te Matua Ngahere and the Yakas are found at the Waipoua Sanctuary.
