We list below some of the main local attractions all within an easy drive of our campsite
This beautiful area in the far north of New Zealand is a playground for those who just love beaches and is perfect for young families or fishermen. Each beach or bay has its own distinct personality and special character.
These vary from sheltered bays with fine white sand, such as Matai Bay and Rangiputa, to rugged rocky coastline with pounding surf. Tokerau Beach is perfect for kite surfing and sand yachting and for wave surfing when the wind and tides are right.
Or you can just relax and soak up the sun in this subtropical paradise.
Diving and snorkelling in Doubtless Bay is excellent yet still relatively unknown and exclusive. The local skippers know the top spots and can take you to them. Collect mussels, scallops and, of course, crayfish. .

Situated just north of Kaitaia, about 20 minutes drive from the campground, is this large showroom of Kauri craftsmanship where you can stroll around the many beautiful examples of what can be made from this ancient wood. Well worth a visit.
Discover the history of The Far North and the gum digging revolution that shaped the landscape, the people and the local industries of our past as well as our modern day lives. View the maze of giant gum holes that reveal extraordinary kauri trees from prehistoric times and explore the mystery that caused the destruction of these ancient forests.
