The Far North

a bus tour to Cape Reinga

You may not want to leave Taupo Bay, but if you do there are lots of options including joining a bus tour to Cape Reinga and the very tip of New Zealand.

15-minute drive to Mangonui and Doubtless Bay. Try the fish and chips and Mangonui’s legendary fish and chip shop overlooking the harbour.

Explore the shops and historic buildings and walk the waterfront.

Enjoy a coffee looking over the harbour, or a beer at the Mangonui Hotel.

A walk up to Rangikapiti Pa will reward you with a panoramic view overlooking Mangonui Harbour.
