Bring some cut up potatoes, kumara and pumpkin to the Thermal Walk in Tokaanu. There are some pits in the hot water you can put your food in. Cover, come back in a couple of hours and voila your food is steamed – this is a poia, similar to a hangi but steamed, not smoked.

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.
