Wharekawa Harbour

Wharekawa Harbour

Access to Wharekawa Harbour is by following the road sign on State Highway 25 for Opoutere, driving between Whangamata and Hikuai. Opoutere is both the small hamlet on the northern edge of the harbour, and the beach reached from a walkway from the northeast end of the harbour.

There is some freedom camping at the northeast end of the harbour, and a larger commercial campground a little further north. Jumping off a bridge on the walkway and boating are both popular. But the number of large pohutukawas, heavy with epiphytes, along the road is also quite a feature.
