    The facilities are excellent, property is well kept. I would recommend the motor camp . We stayed in a double room with bath in the lodge. Less than a mile from 90 mile beach. 75 nz dollars for a double room with bath.The television wasn't working in the room (Unit 1 )shower and toilet where clean .The kitchen had everything you need with a nice lounge area .

The climb was tough - the hill was steep and for every two steps you took the sand dragged you back another. See the pictures! It was just like tobogganing, only instead of snow you got sand everywhere :) After sandboarding we stopped at Henderson Beach, which was pretty but uneventful.

    Caught the ferry across from Paihia to Russell, a small quaint town that reminded me of some of the villages in Cornwall. It claims to be the birthplace of New Zealand as it was the first colonials and Maoris that lived here. Shortly after the first Brits settled, they had all the sailors staying there which meant 50 liquor stores and numerous brothels were existed to cater to the men's needs! They were the days. We walked up to flagstaff hill, famous because it's where ...

The Waipoua Forest is home to the ancient Kauri trees. The oldest one is called Tane Mahuta and is thought to be about 2000 years old. It has a girth of 13.8m and stands 51.5m high. After visiting this one, we go on a walk through the forest to find some of its not ...

    ... Zealand actually is – the Treaty of Waitangi was drawn up in 1840. We were told that today 20-25% of the population is Maori and that many of the old ways have been lost.

    ... and the kids even did some rolling and sliding down, great fun. Rorke said that "this is what traveling is all about! " Roxton and Rorke decided to go back up, Paige joined them. Rorke decided about a third of the way up to slide down but the other 2 kept going. Roxton came running down and had a royal wipeout he totally went helter skelter but picked himself up and dusted himself off! We then continued our drive stopping at Rawara Beach to feel and see the whitest sand, ...
