Track Details

Most popular options - South - North

  • Starting from Kai Iwi Lakes you work you way up the coast camping on the beach. The location is usually dicated to by the tide.
  • Finishing at Hokianga South head.

Part of the NZ Walkways network this 50km, 3 day coastal tramp takes you past the Waipoua Kauri forest and along some fabulous beaches and headlands. Many sections of the track along the beach are effected by the tide, especially some of the river mouths. These crossings are best crossed at low tide so plan your travel around the tides.

The Hokianga South Head has breathtaking views of Omapere and Opononi also looks out to the sand dunes on the over side. This is generally the finishing point with more facilities located nearby.
