Holiday inspiration, family entertainment that does not cost the earth and places to explore are on your holiday shopping list. Perhaps a cafe for adults or art and craft venues for a gift or two. Tutukaka answers most of the questions about where to go and what to see. The ace in the hole is proximity. Location, location and location. Close to Whangarei for an urban coffee fix or the Poor Knights Island with its glorious marine world at your fingertips. Never been diving, explore a foreign world and find out what is beneath the deep blue Pacific ocean. Or perhaps a classic beach holiday where your mobile reception is spotty then Oakura Bay is the answer for a day trip.
