Camping NZ NEW

Welcome to New Zealand's most comprehensive database of freely available camping information. This is the only travel map of its kind in NZ.


Time: 30 min Distance: 1.2 km loop

Located 35 km north-east of Whangarei, the settlement of Matapouri boasts a picture-postcard sandy beach set in an inviting rocky coastline. The track starts at the top of the hill north of M. Matapouri Road. From Matapouri the track links to a Whangarei District Council track which extends to Whale Bay.

This is a stunning loop track that leads you to wonderful small and secluded, sandy beaches. Much of the track meanders through forest, where the shady canopy provides a refreshing reprieve from the sun during the height of summer, and the beaches provide great opportunities to cool off.
