There's lots to do around Mangonui so we suggest you take your time and stay awhile. Here's our recommended itinerary, we can also suggest custom itineraries to suit your stay.
depending on your energy levels it may be good to keep it local. Sleep in and wake to fresh coffee and pancakes (order when you book). Take in the scenery, put on a vinyl, hit up the hammock and dust off that book - total chill time.
warning this state may last for several days
treat yourself to lunch out or dinner by the seaside only 5 minutes away in Mangonui, then back to the bothy for that muchly anticipated bath under the stars....
you're not going home yet are ya?
Drive 2 hrs North to Cape Reinga and explore all the inbetween, the coffee and donut take out from Wild Nekta cafe in Taipa, the wide open spaces, the rugged coastline, the white sandy shores of Henderson bay, 90 mile (drive it) beach, sunset at the cape, fish & chips at Mangonui and home to that star gazing bath....
it's pack up and head back home day. Revitilised & ready for anything, totally in control, totally in love and totally ready to book another Riverside Glamping stay in a couple of months...we'll see you soon.
time to move, time to seek adventure, time to explore Doubtless bay, from Taupo bay (15mins south) to Kari Kari pernisula (20mins north)...its beach time, it's picnic by the sea time, it's hiking that hill and letting your breath be taken by the views time, it's photo-selfie-insta create those memories time...this is what it's all about....
now your feeling alive, rested, reconnected and in love. Head south for the day to Totara North & Whangaroa, hike the Mahinepua track or tackle the Wairakau Stream track, get picked up by water taxi and order your fresh crayfish mornay from the local pub - your've earned it!
