The Mt Manaia walk was the shortest, had... More

This is a great little walk and you can do a round trip which includes Busby Head. Never many people at the Cove and it is easy to find a tree to sit under to avoid the sun. Best to avoid this area in a strong wind from the southerly quarter as it is exposed but OK in anything from... More

We have just returned from three nights staying at the Bream Head coastal walk lodge. The facilities and prepared meals were superb. Claire our hostess also provided excellent advice and chaffeured us to and from the start of our chosen tracks. The walking experiences varied in many ways and were easy or challenging depending on your preference. The native bush,... 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
