Te Arai Point is a good place to go fishing and surfing, you can camp in the carpark on the sandy/grassy part just behind the dunes. There are a couple of toilets but no water

One of the following tips will be selected at random each time the Tips Widget is displayed. New tips are being added all the time so this list will change. Tips are moderated by the Rankers crew.

If you like diving, the Poor Knights Islands are amazing (Top 10 in cool water in the world).
Make sure you bring a torch and good shoes when you explore the Abbey Caves just out of Whangarei. The trip takes a few hours and you will see lots, and lots of glow worms, stalactites and stalagmites.
The Kai Iwi lakes are well worth a visit, three clear turquoise coloured lakes surrounded by white beaches and pine forest. In this area you can go swimming, fishing, walking and mountain biking. There is also access to the Tasman Sea.
Whangarei Falls, just 5km out of town are an easy walk through some nice bush. Very photogenic and sometimes used by trained professionals for abseiling activities.
Go to the Hokianga Harbour and walk up the massive sand dunes - impressive. Catch the ferry there from Opononi, or its a 15minute drive from Mitimiti.
In Kawakawa are NZ’s most famous toilets designed by Friedrich Hundertwasser.
Go back in time to experience the colonial birthplace of New Zealand in the small, yet very busy town in the summer; Russell, where this countries founding document the Treaty of Waitangi was signed. This little town was for a short time the capital city of NZ. Easily accessed by both road and ferry from Paihia.
If you get the chance, go boating in the Bay of Islands – the most relaxing place to be on the ocean. Surrounded by 144 sheltered islands where there are many private beaches to spend the day, or days at. Amazing.
Te Arai Point is a good place to go fishing and surfing, you can camp in the carpark on the sandy/grassy part just behind the dunes. There are a couple of toilets but no water
The Tutukaka Coast has most beautiful beaches and a good place to see the beautiful Poor Knights Islands (marine reserve). The first little settlement you get to is Ngunguru, drive on past Matapouri to Whale Bay. Whale Bay is accessed by foot only, but via a very good track.
If you are driving up north from Auckland, use highway 16, which goes out northwest to Wellsford. The roads are far more wow and scenic with less traffic, lots of beaches to see along the way.
The little town of Opononi is a real New Zealand icon, it may not look impressive to the traveller but in the 50’s this town had a resident dolphin called Opo living there that swam with people. There is a sculpture as a reminder (drive slow or you will miss it). Check out the video shown at the local museum to get the vibe why NZ loved Opo so much.
The drive out to Whangarei Heads road follows little sheltered bays along the coast, at the end of the road is Ocean Beach, a massive beach with white sand, excellent surfing, rock pools and amazing views.
If you want to go well off the beaten track make your way up to Mimiwhagata Coastal Park, managed by DOC, camping available, basic water and toilets. You have to walk a few hundred metres to get there.
If you are game to drive along 90mile beach you need to be a bit careful, only do it 2 hours after high tide and drive as close to the water as possible so you don’t get stuck in the soft sand. Lots of cars do get stuck, flooded and destroyed. Emergency services are far, far away, it is for this reason that if you are driving a rental car you will not be insured. If you are not keen to drive yourself, catch a tour bus.
At the southern tip of 90 mile beach is Ahipara, a surfer’s paradise, also very close to Ship Wreck Bay where you can see wrecks at low tide. This area is loaded with lots of history about gum diggers.
The drive to around KariKari Peninsular is fantastic. Lots of secluded beaches. We didn't stay there but Maitai Bay looks a great place to spend the night.

Amazing walk, well sign posted, uneven terrain makes it challenging, saw one seal.

Long track along the coast. We have seen the Red Rocks and the seal colony - beautiful place but for some people the track might be too long for what you get.

See wild seals! Just one word for that - unforgettable. But I am wondering why there are red rocks and grey rocks?

This is a very beautiful walk close to the beach and you can see some seals if you are patient and it depends on the season.

Really cool place, I love how it is so wild. I wouldn't want the track to get any better as it would be too busy.

    This place is worth a look. Take one of the hiking routes where you will see all sorts of landscapes in only 20km. Remember all kinds of clothing! The weather changes quickly.
