Te Paki

Te Paki

Just before you get to Cape Reinga on Sate Highway 1, you will see the turn off to Te Paki on Te Paki Stream Road. Follow this short road to the stream below the sand dunes. You can cross the stream by foot to get over to the dunes. You can also walk down the stream to 90 Mile Beach.

The dunes are stunning – up to 150 m high, 10 km long and 1 km wide. It is a bit of a slog to climb up, but quite doable. Ideally, have a sandboard for a fast way down!

There is also a campsite there, which marks the end of the Te Paki Coastal Track.

Thanks to Jan Rozek for providing the photos.
