Go to the Hokianga Harbour and walk up the massive sand dunes - impressive. Catch the ferry there from Opononi, or its a 15minute drive from Mitimiti.

If you are driving up north from Auckland, use highway 16, which goes out northwest to Wellsford. The roads are far more wow and scenic with less traffic, lots of beaches to see along the way.

The R.Tucker Thompson under full sail

A chance to go sailing on a working tall ship in one of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand, the Bay of Islands. Better still, with profits made from tourism going to support youth development, your day out is going to a good cause!
