On the eastern side of the rugged Hunua Ranges, Waharau extends from the range to the coast. Enjoy farmland, river banks and forest areas for camping, picnics, walking and mountain biking. The coast meets the forest at Waharau and there are many tracks or linkages with the Hunua Ranges, through the area’s foothills.
Facilities at this camp include: caravan power points, flush toilets, cold water showers. Camp usually closed during winter due to ground being too boggy.
