With a massive sand dune guarding the entrance this is the first you see of Hokianga harbour as you come toward it from the Waipoua forest (Where the Kauri die back is happening)
Little settlement of Omapere on the point
Very rural New Zealand with a 'does it all' shop in Opononi
Coffee and breakfast at the cafe in Opononi.
