The Kaipara Harbour

The Kaipara Harbour

Seals on the rock, Kaipara HarbourAs you drive from Kaiwaka, across the mountainous Brynderwyn Ranges, you’ll reach the turn-off to the vast Kaipara Harbour, New Zealand’s largest enclosed harbour and a wonderful place to find a tranquil rural hideaway. Discover the Kaipara Harbour’s historic rural townships of Maungatoroto, Paparoa, Ruawai and Matakohe, and be sure to check out Northland’s award-winning Kauri Museum at Matakohe.

Auckland & Northland Route PlannerThe historic riverside town of Dargaville is Kaipara Harbour’s main centre, and the ideal gateway to the ancient forests of the Kauri Coast, or tuck yourself away at tiny Tinopai and enjoy the beaches and fishing.
