What I love about Bream Bay
The Beaches - the only decision you need to make is which one – a safe deserted sands of Uretiti, the popular beaches of Waipu Cove and Ruakaka with their summer surf patrol, the white sands of Lang’s Beach…
The Rivers – visit the bird sanctuary on the Waipu estuary, hire Kayaks and explore the Ruakaka estuary and bird life.
The History - start with a visit to the Waipu Museum and information centre. Trace the unique migration of Norman McLeod and his followers, who sailed from Scotland, via Nova Scotia and Melbourne to Waipu. Drive the Heritage Trail or visit the old graveyard on Cove Rd.
The Hills – explore the Waipu Caves, walk the numerous tracks, visit the Piroa Falls, go horse trekking.
The Sea and offshore Islands - try surf casting off Uretiti Beach, charter a boat to go fishing or dolphin watching or visit the Hen and Chicken Islands
The People - I love living in a small community, being an active part of that community, organising, networking, being friends.Back to Top
