Explore the Kauri Coast from Dargaville
Dargaville, Gateway to the Kauri Coast, two and a half hours drive north west of Auckland, is a unique town of approximately 4,500 people and nestles amongst the hills radiating northwards from the Northern Wairoa River. In the past two decades Dargaville has grown as a tourist destination, especially as a central base from which to visit the virtually untouched and unspoiled recreational paradise - Discover a place of wild surf beaches, spectacular sand dunes, giant Kauri and mysterious ship wrecks. Ninety minutes north of Auckland, turn left at Brynderwyn and follow the Twin Coast Discovery Highway along Northlands’ Kauri coast.
