Waihora Lagoon along the Western Bays Road is a hidden gem and so worth the effort to go and see it. When you turn in, you go through some farmland and along some fairly rough roads – if your car can handle it keep driving until you reach the carpark. Park and follow the track to the lagoon. Old trees dripping with lichen surround the lagoon, it almost feels as if little talking animals are going to come out and talk to you. ....This place is magical.


Hukafalls Jet is the only jet boat company permitted to take you right to the base of the mighty Huka Falls, New Zealand’s most visited natural attraction!
