Tips from locals
A popular restaurant and bar at the Town Basin. Options to suit everyone and vegan options included on their menu.
Upmarket dining with excellent views of the town basin and Hatea River. Best all-round restaurant. Also does an awesome breakfast!
⋒ For a finer dining experience overlooking the harbour. ⋒ Go at night time to see the twinkling lights across the water and the bridge's light works.
Pleasant location to dine or just for a drink looking out at the boats moored in the harbour.

“Whale Bay is our local Rarotanga !!....a most special bay surrounded by beautful bush and a short walk from the Whale Bay carpark. Also a lovely spot early evening to watch the sun go down while enjoying a wine/ beer on the beach . You wont want to leave! And...you will want photos! There is also a beautiful scenic walk from Matapouri to Whale Bay which takes 1/2hour.”

“Nestled in the heart of the Whangarei Quarry Gardens is the Quail Cafe. It's the starting point for a walk in the gardens, and a wonderful place to refuel and relax.”
