Located close to a variety of great bush walking... More

This is the first time we have stayed in a purpose built accommodation block and did not have to move each day. This was very comfortable and well thought out. The walks were fantastic. Good variety and challenges and of course gorgeous scenery. Claire's ability to communicate clearly throughout setting up the walk as well as on the spot was... More

We took the 3 day (2 night) walking option and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Claire was certainly "the host with the most!!!. Her food was amazingly yummy and plentiful and she was just so accommodating for the entire stay. The walks and scenery were incredible. In fact we need to go back to complete the walks we didn't have... More

Walks to suit everyone is the best way of describing what's on offer. All seven of us chose walks to suit ourselves then we scattered for the day. Claire ensured we were all dropped off and picked up each afternoon as necessary. We arrived back at night to a meal that surpassed our expectations (a bonus was some of the... More

We spent Labour weekend experiencing Bream Head Coastal Walks. We enjoyed every moment from our flight to Whangarei to our wander around the Whangarei marina complex before our flight home. Claire was an awesome hostess managing the transportation and meals brilliantly. We had three days of varied walks - beach and farmland on day 1; Bream head on day 2... More

We have just enjoyed three wonderful days of tramping at Bream Head Coastal Walks and can not recommend this experience more highly. The scenery was stunning, the facilities at the lodge were excellent and Claire's cooking was 'to die for'. This was our first experience of catered tramping and it certainly won't be our last! Thanks Claire for a wonderful... More

We did the loop track out to smugglers cove via the gun emplacements and back. The signs listed the walk as one hour but it took as closer to 2 as we stopped often to take in the views. The track passes through a variety of landscapes, including open hillside, bush and beach. Along the way there are some WW2... More

I enjoyed the lodge, the hospitality, the other guests, and the unguided walks which Claire discussed with me and drove me to the beginning points and collected me at their end. It was a very relaxed three days as you could plan to do what the weather and your fitness permitted. Fabulous outdoor bath to soak in after the longest... More

We had only passed through Whangarei once before, so it was nice to have a chance to look round the area as well as doing some walking. The first day we walked to Ocean beach - it was very windy, but nonetheless it was a lovely walk along a beautiful beach. Claire's catering is amazing, and so nice to come... More
