St Paul's Rock is a very accessible view point above the stunning Whangaroa Harbour. It only requires a medium fitness level to walk and for the final bit climb to the top. If you're in the area it's definitely worth doing. You drive up above...More

The weather was not the best so we decided to do a walk instead of going to the beach. My husband found this walk to do at Whangaroa. When he pointed out the hill we were going to climb, I didn't think I could do...More
