The first stop on the gorgeous Tutukaka coastline is the sleepy town of Ngunguru. This town boasts a beautiful estuary and seashore with some fascinating local history.
During our Ngunguru Short Tour we will pick you up in Whangarei and then head out on a twenty minute scenic drive to Ngunguru. Once at our destination we stop for a coffee and a chat before setting off for a stroll along the estuary.
Here you have the chance to delve into rock pools, spot local seabirds, and hear native tui singing in the trees. This 45 minute walk takes us along the beautiful estuary coastline until we reach the stunning Whangaumu Bay.
The lookout at the end of the walk affords epic 360’ views of the Ngunguru estuary, far off Whangarei Heads and Whangaumu Bay coastline. From here you can descend to the sand beach, or return along the rock pool path back to Ngunguru.
Perfect for wildlife and nature lovers, this short walk is a 90 minute return along the beach and is tide dependent. Please enquire when you book as to what time of the day it will run.
