    Looking for a great place to visit while in the Northland Region the Taiharuru Peninsula is one such destination, located around thirty kms North East of Whangarei city this area provides some stunning ocean views white sandy beaches and a walk up Kauri Mountain.

    The Taiharuru Peninsula and Pataua are accessed from Pataua South Road on the way to Whangarei Heads this area is one big tidal estuary and a great place to explore the beautiful coastline on the Taiharuru Road there is a short coastal walk with stunning views, the walk sarts at the gap and follows the cliff top.

    A little further along Taiharuru Road is a small coastal settlement and Taiharuru Bay this beautiful white sady beach is a great place to swim and take in the stunning views, you can also launch a kayak here in favorable conditions and explore the rocky coastline around to the tidal inlet.

    Pataua South is at the very end of Pataua South Road and on the other side of the tidal inlet here there is a beautiful small estary with a sandy beach for swimming or head over the bridge by foot only to Pataua North and you have access to a wide sandy beach there is also a great short walk through the camping ground to the headland of Pataua South with fantastic views over the estaury.

    Kauri Mountain Track is a short walk up Kauri Mountain with stunning views and is located just south of Taiharuru Peninsula and can be accessed from two locations the first is off Kauri Mountain Road and is not suitable for any large vehicle like a motorhome.

    The second access point is from Harambee Road and a parking bay located by the post boxes the rest of the road is private, the walk is first up a steep metal road then through regenerating bush to the summit the views accross the extaury and North to Pataua are fantastic the walk is easy and will take around 1.5 hours one way.
