To continue Te Araroa south from Urquharts Bay look out for a boat to take you across the channel to Marsden Point. This may not be possible from Urquharts Bay, so the descriptions that follow are still on the northern side of the harbour and simply take you along a waterfront area where you might pick up a ride on a local boat. You don't have to complete these. The sooner you get a boat ride, the sooner you're heading directly south again, and not just sidling west.

Boat Charters Bream Bay Charters Ltd - P: 0274 749 751. Steve Martinovich operates a 38 foot charter boat, based at Marsden Cove marina and is licensed to carry up to 20 people across the harbour. You may be able to piggyback on an existing charter or make you own arrangements with him. Alternatively, look out for a boat to take you across the channel to Marsden Point.

Fishing enthusiasts tend to depart boat ramps (Urquarts Bay, Reotahi Bay) or jetties (McLeod Bay) early morning or evening.

Choose a seaworthy craft, ask for a lifejacket & offer koha (a donation) for fuel. Be aware that the area immediately surrounding the Marsden Point wharf is a high security area and is closed to any unoffical boat traffic. The little beach west of the MP wharf, adjacient to the Northport wharf is a suitable place to land or depart from.

David Capey can take people across the harbour to Marsden Point. $20pp koha or $50 for 3 or 4 people.

Call him - in advance of needing a ride - on 021 722369.

Duncan Thorpe can get people across from Reotahi to Marsden Point.

Call him to discuss booking and koha - 0274 172440 / 021 1125814.

There are ramps and jetties right along this coast, and bear in mind that fishing enthusiasts tend to depart boat ramps or jetties early morning or evening. Wind and tides can make crossing hazardous so choose a seaworthy craft, ask for a life jacket, and offer koha (a voluntary donation) for fuel. Be aware when you reach the the southern side of the harbour, that the area immediately surrounding the Marsden Point Wharf is high security, and closed to unofficial boat traffic. The little beach west of the Marsden Point Wharf, adjacent to the Northport Wharf is a suitable place to land.

If you need to go to Whangarei City for re-supply, there's good hitchhiking from here on along the road.

From the carpark, follow Urquarts Bay Road north onto Whangarei Heads Rd. After 5km, turn south on to Bay View Road and walk down to Little Munroe Bay.

To continue Te Araroa, you can contact Steve Martinovich of Bream Bay Charters Ltd on 0274 749 751. Steve operates a 38 foot charter boat, based at Marsden Cove marina and is licensed to carry up to 20 people across the harbour. You may be able to piggyback on an existing charter or make you own arrangements with him.

For more information on the Whangarei Harbour crossing and Marsden Point please visit the Northland Regional Council's website following this link: http://www.nrc.govt.nz/Living-in-Northland/On-the-water/Safeboating/#marsdenpt Note Toilets, cafe, phone, accommodation available at the Whangarei Heads village and at Marsden Cove marina you will find a cafe, toilets and phone facilities.

Reotahi Track - 3km / 1hr The wide, gravelled track begins on the lower slopes of Mt Aubrey overlooking Little Munroe Bay. It goes around the harbour’s edge to Reotahi Beach (& boat ramp) taking in stunning sea views and passing the historic remains of a freezing works. Very noticeable is the hum coming from the Marsden Point Oil Refinery, just across the 1.5km channel, and the start of the Te Araroa’s next coastal section.

(** Note if you are hoping to wait and find a lift across to Marsden Point, you are better waiting here at Reotahi than continuing around to McLeods Bay) From the northern end of Reotahi Bay, there is a dirt track heading off the side of Reotahi Beach Rd. It climbs the hill to a playground at the end of Norfolk Rd. Head up the road to a driveway just past #34. Take this driveway and turn right (north) over the front lawn past the last house. Beyond it are steps leading down to a small footbridge. This track leads to Matuku Street. Follow this, then up to the end of Darch Point Rd where a well-defined track follows the headland around to the jetty at McLeod Bay.

Other Information Te Araroa preferred hostel (Whangarei) YHA Whangarei, 12 Ngunguru Rd, Glenbervie, Whangarei - P: 09 4370609 E: whangarei@yha.co.nz YHA Whangarei is perfectly situated for Te Araroa walkers and welcomes walkers to send their gear ahead to pick up.

Helena Bay There is a campground at Waikahoa Bay in the Mimiwhangata Coastal Park, see info here It is 4.5km from the Webb/Kaiikanui/Mimiwhangata Rd junction down to the coastal park then a further 1km over a hill to the campground.

Note The DOC Back Country Hut pass does not apply and bookings are essential in peak season - see link for further details.

Morepork-Onekainga Track KIWI Area - NO DOGS allowed.

The Morepork track is well used by DoC for predator control, consequently there are a number of different colored markers for traps and bait stations. Stay clear of those and follow the orange markers. The last kilometre, before the Morepork track joins onto the Onekainga track, requires a little more focus, as you will have left the well benched track and are now following a smaller, less obvious track where some sections get worked over by wild pigs.

The Onekainga section of this track is on private land - bush and farm, please respect this privilege. Open daylight hours only. NO dogs, horses, vehicles, guns, litter or fires.

It is recommended to use GPS and Topo maps for this track.

Pacific Coast Kayaks - Mark Garry - P: 09 436-1947 or M: 021 1295-921- E: pc.kayaks@gmail.com Offer a shuttle trip from Ngunguru to Pataua or Taiharuru, with a lunch stop at Goat Island (lunch provided). Pataua has a camping ground but Taiharuru is closer to the start of the track. This is a guided trip as there are a few hazards such as a bar crossing at Pataua. They do not hire kayaks out to solo paddlers. Pacific Coast Kayaks will carry hikers' packs to the take-out point where hikers can resume their journey. As there is additional mileage involved and a driver has to do a pickup, the cost is more than a usual day trip. It is therefore cheaper if people join up with other hikers so that the transport costs can be shared.
