Within the Auckland region there are so many wonderful parks - amongst the best is Tawharanui.
If you're looking for a "back to nature" camping experience (which most of our customers are!), this is the perfect spot.
There are tent sites located next to the beach, with a stunning swimming beach just over the dunes. At sunrise and sunset, you'll be captivated.
The walks in the park take in sandy beaches, rocky coastlines, wetlands, native bush and pasture.
The mountain bike trails, although short, provide amazing views and photo opportunities across the eastern coastline of Northland and Auckland.
And as Tawharanui is a conservation area, there are lots of interesting nature experiences to be had - families can explore the conservation trust's recommended nature trails and bird lovers will enjoy the wide variety of seabirds, coastal and land birds that visit the park.
A wonderful spot to relax, unwind and rejuvenate!
Highly recommended as a long weekend trip from Auckland or as a first stop on your tour through Northland and the Far North.
