Highlights of the day
Our journey back to Auckland is packed with places to explore. We start with a brisk walk along the longest footbridge in the Southern Hemisphere. Then a chance for a great photo moment at Frying Pan Lookout with its sweeping views of the Poor Knights to Mt Manaia.
One of the highlights of the day is visiting a pottery workshop, where you can meet 2 amazing award winning potters and you also have a chance to try your skills.
A quiet river tributary Scow Landing has a story to tell us and then sheer sheets of water make another photo moment. Whangarei Falls is a must for memory moments.
Quick but delicious “Classic Kiwi” lunch before the pottery workshop.
Industrial heritage is a hallmark of Aotearoa NZ archaeological sites and Wilson Cement Works will not disappoint. The first portland cement manufacturing works in the southern hemisphere, Wilson’s Cement Company, was established near the town in 1884. It closed its doors in 1928 during the depression years. The ruins still remain and the mine is now a popular local fresh water swimming hole.
A farewell in Auckland early evening with promises to meet again.
