Frank arranged a quad biking tour with Tua Tua, and it ended up being a private tour-only Frank and the guide for 1.5 hours on the dunes. It was awesome! First we rode around the beach to get used to the quad and to get a feeling for drifting it through turns. After about half an hour or so, we headed up into the massive dunes, which were very steep
We didn't have much time to comfortably drive 100km one way to Cape Reinga, so we started driving southbound towards Auckland. We wanted to see the huge Kauri trees the next day and planned to drive as close to them as possible the rest of the day. We took another ferry from Kohukohu to Rawene - nothing really noteworthy, just a short 15 minute ferry ride. We ended up spending a night at a holiday park in Opononi.
