By chance we took 4 families camping at Waharau after a different campsite was cancelled. And by chance, we happened to be there when a fierce tropical storm descended on New Zealand, with winds up to 140 km/hr.

Although the camp rangers and civil defence were very helpful in their advice about the storm and the possible exposure, we decided to stay. And again, by chance, we were in the Blackberry camp area and were almost completely protected from the storm, at least from most of the wind and some of the rain.

Which meant we had a lot of the wonderful bush tracks and playing areas to ourselves, with children from 2 years old and their parents and grandparents having a great adventure.

Highly recommended.

A nice Regional Park with options, day trip, or camping overnight. If visitors have only a day, then there are five options of tracks, with different coloured code track, from the shortest Puriri Grove Track 1.4km for 30 minutes loop, to the longest Waharau Ridge Loop Track 11km for 3.5 hours. If visitors wanting to stay overnight, there are several camp grounds available for booking through Auckland Council Office. This regional park is a land away from the beach, and therefore has no beach front. So, enjoy your times here with family.

This quiet regional park is a short diversion from the Pacific Coast Highway. It has several interesting walking trails, BBQ spots for picnics, and secluded and idyllic camping. The walk through the tree fern forest by the stream was particularly beautiful.

There are several different lengths of trails, depending on your time and fitness level. We did the 30 minute walk through the forest and it was a great diversion to stretch our legs after driving.
