Holiday Photo Album Auckland to Cape Reinga, New Zealand 

Album 12 - We continued north along the east coast from Auckland stopping to do the walks at Mangawhai and Whangarei before camping at Whananaki DoC (camp 26). We learned a lot about Maori Culture and the Treaty of Waitangi while at the Bay of Islands. Continuing north we visited a winery and a chocolate factory before stopping at Rarawa Beach DoC (camp 27). Our attempt to get to the northernmost point of New Zealand, on Cape Reinga, was thwarted by the floods that washed out a bridge on the only road north (next time!). We drove along 90 Mile Beach, visited Waipu Caves and Piroa Falls then stayed the night at Bream Bay DoC (camp 28). Exploring Waitakere Regional Park, just west of Auckland, was a highlight. We loved Bethels Beach with its surf, rocky bays and many sea caves. Click on the thumbnails below to access larger photos and information about our travels.
