What to See and Do in
The Kauri Coast is a dramatic stretch of picturesque beaches and Kauri forest accessed along the Twin Coast Discovery Highway, 90 minutes’ drive north of Auckland.
Drive toward the mighty Kaipara Harbour to the famous Kauri Museum at Matakohe. Enjoy the riverside town of Dargaville built along the edge of the wide Northern Wairoa River with significant Maori and pioneer history. Visit Baylys Beach for your first encounter with the wild Tasman Sea.
Three stunning freshwater lakes known as the Kai Iwi Lakes are situated 35km northwest of Dargaville, and then further north to the Kauri rainforests including Trounson Park which is a protected ‘island’ reserve home to 200 kiwi living in their natural environment.
