Heading north to Waipoua Forest and the Kauri Coast you'll journey along the remote West Coast of the North Island and around one of the world's largest natural harbours, the Kaipara Harbour. The region was developed by immigrant Dalmatians making a living from the gum fields. Visit Kauri Museum at Matakohe for the story of their hardships and of the remarkable impact this tree had on the region and the wider world. You'll have plenty of opportunity to stop along this spectacular route, so be sure to leave time for sightseeing.
