Big Dunes And Big Beaches: Waimamaku Track

The ferry from Kohukohu began our homestretch, turning south toward an Auckland appointment with Air New Zealand and a return to the States. Past Rawene and the Kuoto Boulders, we drove the south side of Hokianga harbor/estuary. The entry to the harbor consists of immense dunes and, beyond them, interesting beaches. We had time for a look, but no more.


Not as immense as Namibia, but pretty immense

We drove to an overlook and did a bit of the walk; here, looking

The harbor/estuary; also immense

Sandstone...petrified dunes

Entry to the harbor

Coast, beaches on the north side

And just below us on the south side

To explore next time
