Review of Town Basin

Town Basin
Ranked #2 of 56 things to do in Whangarei

Reviewed December 11, 2012

All who visit Whangarei should spend some time browsing the interesting shops and attractions of the Town Basin. Pay a visit to "Burning Issues" and see glass being blown and buy a fantastic glass momento of your visit. The new developments there are worth a look and a walk down the mangrove boardwalk is relaxing.

Nice souvenir shops, restaurants and a picturesque quayside along the river. The food is good and the beer is cold. Parking close by, and yes, it's just a nice place to chill-out. Oh yes, Don't forget to try a locally made ice cream, Mmm.

The town basin has many cafes, shops and restaurants. We had a delicious ice cream while we were there the best ever. It has a walkway along the water and a great play ground for younger and older children. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the view of the boats moored.

Didn't find much to shout about here. Maybe once upon a time this was a place to go when in the area. Guess there's been too little tourist activity and so the place has deteriorated.

Right in the centre of town and close to the airport; very attractive display of sails and yachts. While I was there Laura Dekker arrived at the end of her around-the-world solo sail.
