Had a good little walk around and quite a good spot to hang out and chill with family and friends. Quiet at night when we strolled through.

Easy to get to and good parking. Really enjoyed the variety of shops and restaurants/cafes with good food and service. The playground is fantastic for the kids to work off some energy.

If you're visiting Whangarei don't miss a stroll around the Town Basin. Beautiful marina, shops, cafes and restaurants, and if you love art the amazing Reyburn House is just there, with expositions and artistic souvenirs (the house and garden in itself it's worth a visit)....More
