Tokomaru Bay is another wharf largely abandoned to its fate as the ocean eats at the structure. It’s heyday was as a port exporting wool and meat from local meatworks closed in 1952.

Tokomaru Bay

The centre of Tokomaru Bay’s economy between 1911 and 1952 was the freezing works at Waimā, at the northern end of the bay. Local activities include fishing and surfing Waimea Bay.


Tokomaru Horse Treks, trading as Eastender Horse Treks, appears to be permanently closed. Fishing is very popular, off the rocks, from the shore or on your boat. Tokomaru Bay Wharf is a recognisable landmark in the bay.
