Forty minutes south of Whangarei, Waipu Cove is a jewel in the southern coastline of Northland, boasting views of Mount Manaia and Whangarei Heads.
In the morning we cruise to Mangawhai, where the Saturday markets offer artisan goodies, delicious local fare and a chance to mingle with Northland locals. We then drive back to Waipu Cove where we start the walk.
The tour takes us along the cliff tops, past beautiful natural limestone formations, deserted wind-swept beaches and stunning holiday homes. We arrive at lovely Lang’s Beach where a hot BBQ lunch is cooked, using the freshest local produce and ingredients. On the way back to Whangarei we stop at local brewery McLeod’s, to sample a local beverage or two.
This tour requires medium to high fitness, return trip to Whangarei approximately 8 hours. This tour takes place each Saturday.
