Join us exploring the very best of Northland’s coast and bush, with something for everyone from easy strolls to more challenging grades.
Mangawhai is a popular walking destination in New Zealand with the Mangawhai Walking Weekend, an annual event at the end of March, showcasing the walks in the area. Some of these walks are accessible any time of the year.
Local guides: We aim for this weekend to be an enjoyable social time while discovering Mangawhai and its beautiful surroundings. All walks are led by a knowledgeable guide who will lead the walk, set the pace and remain at the front while the ‘Tail end Charlies” ensure everyone keeps part of the group.
Safety: We walk as a group between the leader and the ‘Tail-end Charlies’. Walkers are required to sign in at the beginning of each walk, and sign off at the end – our way of accounting for all walkers.
Meeting: All walks leave from and return to the Mangawhai Domain, Moir Street Mangawhai. Arrive 15 minutes before Assembly time.
Booking: All walks have limited numbers – please do not be disappointed if your first choice is not available. Please make sure you indicate a second choice.
Getting to the Walks: Car pooling will be organised for some of the walks, this is arranged on the day. Some walks include bus or shuttle transport.
Booking Confirmation: Confirmation of your walks, and information about what to bring will be emailed to you.
Toilets: Some walks do not have toilet facilities. There are toilets at the Domain Hall.
