Ahipara Adventure

A travel blog entry by greatbigsummer2


We did intend to stay in Kaitaia but when we got there we realised they had no camp grounds, solution: Head 14km up to road to a little settlement called Ahipara at the start of 90 mile beach.

After a sweet breakfast of egg on toast and juice we packed up the camper and headed just 5 minutes up the road to the horse paddock for 9am. …

The hitchiker with the good advise

A travel blog entry by petebonnielaleh

    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 .
