While here I tried to find a walk to do. I came across one that takes you out to the lighthouse, which is on an island. I made it across to the island but didn't carry on to the lighthouse as I did not want to get stranded (it looked like the beach at the bottom between the headland and... More

Peace and Quiet, another world - just 3 hours from central Auckland. Tutukaka is like stepping back 20 years, just fantastic.

Drive along Landowners Lane and park on Reserve Car Park and then walk over the headland for stunning all round views. If the tide is low then walk down to the beach and climb up to the lighthouse on the island of Scenic Reserve for more fabulous views of Tutukaka harbour and its many bays and further along the coastline....

From trips out to the Poor Knights for diving and fishing; to walks along Matapouri BEach and Wooley's Bay.... or a surf at Sandy Bay.... There is much to do, fresh salty air and views and experiences galore. Whale Bay and its secluded nature was a special highlight for us.

Nice little walk - make sure you check the tides. Easy climb down to the beach but after heavy rainfall, the climb up and down to the lighthouse was a little more treacherous. But the views from the top were well worth it, and we loved the harassment by 3-4 very protective Mr Fantails!

Lush green grass track from the carpark over the hill and down to the rocky headland. Great ocean views, with rocky coves, and beautiful blue water. Lighthouse at the end. Great walk and views for a few hours.

A great place to chill on any day. A drive from the town centre of Whangarei but well worth it. There are cafes on the way, or take a picnic and sit on the beach. There is plenty of room for everyone as there is lots of beach.

You access the lighthouse by Landowners Road (runs directly above Marina & is first road on right when leaving Tutukaka driving towards Matapouri). Right at end of Landowners Road is a carpark. Walking track easy to find. Please note you need for it to be low tide as you walk across a tidal area before climbing up hill to reach... More
