A house on the beach in Ngunguru

The Tutukaka coast is just north of Whangarei (the city 45 minutes south of Opua) and is a great outing when you’re going between the two places. There’s a loop off the main highway, and if you just stayed in your car, you could drive it in less than an hour, but you’d miss some wonderful stuff. To really see it, you’ll have to do some parking and walking. I’d give it a good 3 hours or more.

We started from the south end of the loop, taking the turnoff towards the town of Tutukaka. The drive took us through the beautiful pastures of Glenbervie and its old stone walls. About 20 minutes later, we arrived at the small town of Ngunguru, located on a river estuary just inland from the coast. (No, I can’t pronounce it.)
