Start at Hikurangi and wind away from the rural township towards an expanse of turquoise waters, or leave from Whangārei, passing by picturesque orchards, native bush and historic drystone walls.
This special journey follows a circular route with all roads leading to the Pacific Ocean. Along the way take time to enjoy rock pools, waterfalls, ancient kauri trees and views from the many side tracks, and embrace the lure of the sea.
Resplendent with white, sandy beaches and pristine bays and harbours, the spectacular Tutukaka Coast will take your breath away. When it seems this journey is complete, look out into the horizon - sitting just 23 km offshore are the world-famous Poor Knights Islands and Marine Reserve, an unmissable dive spot and an unforgettable place.
