Waitangi

Waitangi

Waitangi is only a 20 minute walk from Paihia along the beach heading north. As you cross the single-lane bridge you step into another world...

an image The Waitangi Treaty Grounds takes you on a journey through New Zealand’s past, telling you the story of the coming together of Maori and Pakeha to generate our modern identity. For anyone serious about understanding New Zealand’s past, Waitangi is not to be missed. 
 
There is a lovely coastal walk and a great lunch spot at Waikokopu cafe. You will also find the Bay of Islands Yacht Club here, the Copthorne Hotel, the Waitangi Golf Club and the start of the Haruru Falls Track, a 5km walking track that takes you up river to the falls themselves.
