List Attractions for:   The Kauri Coast   


The west coast's long stretches of beaches, sparkling harbours and magnificent kauri forests offer a stunning backdrop to any west coast experience. There are some fantastic walking and climbing tracks to follow, including the Waipoua Forest, the Waiotemarama Loop track, Arai Te Aru, Maungaraho Rock and Tokatoka Peak.


The Kauri Coast is a fantastic place for exploration and adventure and one of Northland’s best attractions. Be sure not to miss Matakohe’s Kauri Museum, the largest kauri tree in New Zealand, Tane Mahuta 'God of the Forest', the nature sanctuary of Trounson Kauri Park and the crystal-clear Kai Iwi Lakes. Also be sure to explore New Zealand's longest driveable beach (100km) Ripiro Beach, the Kaipara Harbour, the longest coastline in the Southern Hemisphere, and the majestic Pouto Peninsula.
