Wild Whangapoua

Sunday 30th April

Not only is this place a stunning beach, Whangapoua has long served as a great place to access kaimoana (seafood). You can also spot the New Zealand dotterel (tūturiwhatu), oyster catcher (tōrea) brown teal (pāteke) and banded rail (katatai).

This place offers tranquillity and spectacular views of Rakitu Island and Hirakīmata.  Rakitu Island was the final resting place of Rehua, the ancestor of Ngāti Rehua Ngātiwai ki Aotea.

Come and listen to local stories and see the grave site of the SS Wairarapa, one of NZ’s worst maritime disasters.
