KAIRARA ROCKS (DUKES NOSE) WALK

The track follows the stream behind the Lane Cove hut up a fairly steep gradient to a point where chains have been installed to help you climb to the top of the Kairara Rocks (Duke’s Nose). From the flat top of this ancient volcanic plug, you can take in spectacular views of the native coastal forest below, the Whangaroa Harbour and to the sea beyond.

WAIRAKAU STREAM TRACK

At the end of Campbell Road/Wairakau Rd, Totara North is the start of the Wairakau Stream Track. The track is wide, steep and clay-based so take special care during or after rain. After about 20 minutes walk, you will find a sign showing the way to the Wairakau Stream. The track ends at Lane Cove.

ST PAULS RESERVE

This track is in St Paul's Historic Reserve (Ohakiri) above the Whangaroa township. Turn right on to Old Hospital Road.You can access the track from the carpark at the end of Old Hospital Road. Great for getting your bearings and unsurpassed views toward the heads.
