    Went in to enquire about what I had found on the internet and they were most helpful and pointed us in the right direction.

    Well worth the trip along the 309 Rd from Whitianga. A short drive to see hundreds of pigs of all sizes running around.
    Most of them come reasonably close to see if you gave good for them.
    Tho there are signs stating no feeding. I’m sure many people do give them a snack or two!

    Those are the walks we really like and why we came to NZ for. Take your time and enjoy the environment. What you see by your self is not what you may show on pictures. Go for it.

    We go to Whitianga often as we have a holiday home there. It has grown a lot and there are many attractions in the town and leaving from the town. There are some large grocery and general stores in town and the petrol is cheaper than it is in Auckland.

    The playground is fun for kids, ours definitely enjoyed it when we took them last. This time we discovered a little gem for little girls.... a fairy house. Its on the beach, see if you can find it.

    This place really has that holiday feeing vibe which you probably remember when you were growing up yourself.
    Plenty of good food and beverage options and everything you would need to a holiday in the sun.

    Loved the Bread & Butter Gallery and the lady in the gallery was super helpful. We spent hours looking around as it is one of the few galleries I have visited where I wanted to buy something. Ended up buying a painting and three or four other bits. Had to leave before I went broke. Highly recommend.
