Are we there yet? A fair question when it comes to Te Pakau. It's a loooong winding gravel road alright. But I like the feeling of wilderness, and this place delivers one of the great road access wilderness camping drives in the North Island. But if easy access is your thing, then you're best to go elsewhere as this drive will frustrate you! Take it nice and slow with time on your side. The campsite location is wide and open. The river is sweet. No Kokako heard this time, but I have a strong feeling that I'll be back to put an ear out for its haunting call once more.
