Discover why Māori and European explorers fell in love with this region and chose to settle here.
Follow in their footsteps along the coastal track, which replaced the horse trail from Awaroa to Onetahuti. Here, a unique board walk and bridge – designed by local Māori – leads from the forest to the burnished sands of Onetahuti Beach.
Walk along the spectacular beach to historic Tonga Quarry.
Please note: Weather events can create a wet-foot high tide crossing in the centre of Onetahuti Beach. Please check the tides before booking this option. Click here for Department of Conservation Tide Tables.
