Dune Lakes Retreat

1 site · Lodging37 acres · Helensville
Dune Lakes Retreat and Equine Centre is situated on the beautiful South Kaipara Head Peninsula. The Kaipara South Head is a massive, ancient sand barrier that separates the South Kaipara Harbour from the Tasman Sea. A long line of inter-dune hollows runs up the Kaipara South Head, parallel to the coastline. These inter-dune hollows are lower than the groundwater level so they fill up with groundwater to create fresh water lakes. Lake Ototoa is the largest of these inter-dune lakes. Lake Kereta is another smaller example, as shown in the photo below. To the West The wild coastline and spectacular sunsets over the Tasman Sea and 65 kilometres of Muriwai/Rangatira Beach. To the East The sheltered waters and sunrises over the Kaipara Harbour and Shelly Beach to the east.The Kaipara is the largest harbour in the Southern Hemisphere. It is a pristine and peaceful environment as well as a highly valued recreation area. It is an important feeding ground for marine mammals - orca and dolphins are often seen in the harbour - as well as an internationally significant roosting and feeding area for migratory birds. The keen bird watcher will find Bar-tailed Godwits, Knots, Turnstones, Pacific Golden Plover, Far-Eastern Curlew, Whimrel, New Zealand endemic Fairy Tern, Wrybill, Pied Oystercatcher, Variable Oystercatcher, Banded Dotterel, Pied Stilt, and Caspian Tern. Shelly Beach is a popular recreational beach with a beautiful backdrop of huge old Pohutakawa trees - with a kids play area, and a wharf where fishermen and boating enthusiasts gain access to the Kaipara Harbour. To the North The calm and tranquillity of lagoon at the top of the Peninsula. The wetland is home to mallard, grey duck, black swan, pied shag, pukeko, paradise shelduck. The sacred kingfisher nest around the wetland margins and flitting amongst the pine and native trees are North Island fantail, grey warbler and silvereye.

Sommerfeldt Farm

1 site · RV, Tent14 acres · Pukekohe
We are a small farm in a beautiful rural village on the outskirts of Auckland. As well as being a lovely village we are close to beaches, forests & bush walks. We are close enough to Auckland for Daytrips if you want to experience the Big Smoke and far enough away to be away from the hub Bub of city life. We are approx halfway between Auckland city and Hamilton City so a great stop off point if travelling North or South
