As you head towards Russell
along the scenic coast route, 45 minutes north of Whangarei
, you will come accross the tranquil beach of Oakura Bay. This beach lies alongside the entrance to the Whangaruru Harbour and is the perfect launching point to head to the diving mecca that is the Poor Knights Islands.
In town, the white sandy beach is the perfect place to spend the day playing on the sand or enjoying the water. There is a local art gallery and easy access to the other adventure areas of Northland
