3 Day Walks Plus Package
Spend your arrival night at Mataia Homestead planning your first
day’s adventure: you can choose to drive 5 minutes up the road to
the Department of Conservation Atuanui (Mt Auckland) reserve walkway
– one of the first walkways gazetted in New Zealand. This 3-4 hour
walk through beautiful mature native bush climbs to the summit at
305m and provides panoramic views over the Kaipara area. OR drive 20
minutes north to visit Atiu Creek Regional Park – a farm park gifted
to the Auckland Council in 2006 by Jackie and Pierre Chatelanat. A
network of walking trails stretches across the farm, through the
valleys and along the ridge tops, offering magnificent vistas of the
Kaipara and surrounding areas.
After a days exploring, return to Mataia Homestead for another
night to relax before you start the 2 Day Mataia Walk the next day.
