when visiting the north island of NZ, it is more than logical to include Northland. And with due respect to the Maori, one should also visit the cape. The place where the spirits of the inhabitants move to the hereafter... Geologically, the cape is a very interesting place to visit. You'll have to make a 10 minute walk to the... More

This place is out of the way and about a 3 hour drive from Pahia but well worth it. The views are spectacular and the Maori believe that this is where their spirits enter the next world. There is a walk down to the lighthouse which is manageable if you have a reasonable level of fitness but again worth it.... More

Totally worth the around 3 hr drive from Paihia. A place where one could spend hours doing nothing but yet wouldn't feel like leaving. The final drive was thrilling, knowing the road was going to come to an end with no more land to travel on.

Remote, free and worth the drive for views of the north tip of NZ . Paved walk to the light house with lots of treks around the cliffs.

we drove up from Kerikeri to the Cape, the drive up has some breathtaking views. It's worth the drive the way to the top, the Cape has amazing views where the Tasman sea meets the Pacific. It's well set out with toilets as well.

To visit the top most point of New Zealand is a must for you who have come this far past auckland to Northland. From Paihia it is a 3 hour trip each way and a full tank of gas. There is some great scenery along the way and places to stop and visit. Not much in the way of cafes... More

My husband and I recently took our first visit to Cape Reinga while travelling around in our Motorhome. Well worth the trip, even tho it was a blustery and wet day. We were lucky enough to make the walk to the Cape and have a good look around before the rain started to fall too heavily. The path down to... More

Great views from this northerly point and you can see the waves meeting from west and east. We stayed in our motorhome at the Tapotupotu conservation campsite which is nearby and this is a lovely place to camp on the beach. We walked half way from the camp towards cape reinga and you get some great views of the coastline... More

My wife and I recently experienced the Fullers Great Sights bus tour to Cape Reinga. It was definitely a great day made even better by the Fullers Tour Guide who kept us informed and entertained with his great sense of humour. The highlights of the day were the 90 Mile beach, the sight of our grey nomads sliding down the... More
