Acerca de

Whangaparapara has a fascinating timber trade, mining and whaling history. Discover the historic site of the Kauri Timber Company sawmill. The sawmill once processed logs rafted by sea from Coromandel and as far as Northland.

The first part of this trek takes you along a tramline track, used to extract timber from local forests to be taken to Auckland to be milled.
After a catered lunch, the second part of the trek takes you on to the remains of the whaling station at Whangaparapara. Locals Tony and Carol Litherland live aboard a homebuilt houseboat, moored off the site of the whaling station. Tony is a wealth of information on local history. Over a cup of tea on board, hear some of their intriguing tales on life and history in the area.
