Need a few ideas on what to do on your visit up in the Far North?

Some activities nearby include: rock fishing, surf casting, golf, hovercraft tours, boat charters at Houhora harbour or sand surfing..
- to name just a few!


The Far North beaches are great for collecting shellfish. Malcolm and Robyn know all the best spots where the locals go to collect mussels, tua tua, paua (you might know it as abalone) or crayfish, so just ask!

Even though Henderson Bay is a well-known surf beach it is a great beach for all the family. There are plenty of spots where the kids, big ones too, can boogie board or swim.

For the fisherman the Far North has excellent game fishing and charter vessels are available for hire with some companies supplying all the fishing gear you will need for the outing.

There are hiking trails well marked for the keen hiker, but if you fancy not walking you could try horse riding through Te Aupori Forest, down 90 Mile Beach or around Sprits Bay.
