Mataia Walks

Based on the surrounding 1400ha Mataia Farm, the Mataia Walks offer a rare experience of a working farm run conjunctively with a privately-owned intensive conservation project.

Discover the Kaipara with our multi-day unguided walk packages.

Traverse rolling farmland, explore coastal forests and saltmarsh wetlands, and enjoy stunning views of the Kaipara Harbour from cliff-top walkways.

Relax and revive in our two unique accommodations with the gardener’s heaven at the historic Mataia Homestead, and then the quirky, cosy farm cottage with all the mod-cons and fabulous views.

Enjoy hot showers, comfy beds and delicious food.

Bag cartage provided as well as full track briefings, maps and guidebooks.

Depending on the weather and track conditions, our walk season generally runs from the start of October to the end of April.
