The Hauraki Plains and Seabird Coast is home to a diverse natural landscape and a hive of local activity. Explore the area’s artistic, cultural and historical landscape by spending time getting to know the friendly locals and their diverse communities.

Undertaking the Coastal Walkway as a family excursion is a New Zealand Must-Do. Because of its rugged isolation, remote beauty and lack of distraction, the experience as a family is guaranteed to bond your group, making memories to last a lifetime.
