Limestone Road

Limestone Road

About 7 km along Pakawau Bush Road from Seaford, at the point where the road reaches the Whanganui Inlet, turn right onto Kaihoka Lakes Road. The main attraction is access to the two lakes, but you can continue on narrow Limestone Road around the lake and across steep green farmland, with some very pretty views.

Even though the weather was rather grey, we got a good sense of the rugged countryside that sits between Whanganui Inlet and the northwest coast.

There is also a modest amount of accommodation listed closer to the coast, through which you can also get coastal access.
