The town of Kaikohe is a small town with a limited range of shops and cafes. If you have time to spare, investigate local history at the pioneer village
West of the Bay of Islands is Kaikohe, a good place to stopover for refreshments on the way up the Twin Coast Discovery Highway. Monument Hill offers excellent views and is a beautiful place for a picnic. The main local attraction in Kaikohe is the pioneer village, which includes several restored historic buildings – New Zealand’s oldest courthouse, an 1875 cottage, a jail, a school and more. You’ll also see Maori artefacts, gum-digging equipment and a blacksmith’s shop.
Not far from Kaikohe is two hot pools at Ngawha Springs, Ginns Ngawha Spa & Waiariki Pools. These are the most northern of New Zealand’s geothermal sites.
