  • The Kauri Museum
  • Waipu Museum
  • Quarry Gardens

We are on our way. Depart Auckland 8.30am. Today we cross Auckland Harbour Bridge and travel along the Hibiscus Coast with stops at the Matakohe Kauri Museum for an insight into the pioneering history of the region.

Come and discover how one thousand Gaelic speaking emigrants from the western highlands of Scotland escaped the notorious Highland Clearances and eventually arrived in “the virtual paradise” of Waipu.

Heading towards Whangarei, panoramic views accompany the guide’s storytelling. Mid to late afternoon we arrive in Whangarei. After freshening up at our accommodation you are invited to join an orientation tour of Whangarei. For guests fascinated with time there is the option of clocks ticking and time passing.
