Places to Visit near Lower Northland


Claphams Clocks

Whangarei’s world-famous clock museum is home to over 1600 clocks and timepieces, making it the largest collection of clocks in the Southern Hemisphere.

From mind-boggling backwards clocks, to antique French dancing girl clocks, and even clocks that make the tea – there’s something to amuse every curious and carefree mind at Claphams Clock Museum.

Many Whangarei locals recall with fondness and a chuckle, the inventor, entertainer and practical joker who was Archibald Clapham – or Archie, as he was more commonly known. Archie’s personal collection of around 400 clocks once took up most of his family home. Yorkshire-born Archie, who moved to New Zealand in 1903, was well-known for happily opening his doors to those who wanted to come and see his collection.

In 1961, Archie sold his clocks to the local Council for a nominal sum, effectively gifting his amazing collection to the community he had adopted. The collection has grown to encompass many rare and notable exhibits, which you can now enjoy alongside Archie’s old favourites.

Whangarei Quarry Gardens

Whangarei Quarry Gardens is a community garden project created by volunteers in the forested western hills of Whangarei City. With the ongoing support of Whangarei District Council, Community Employment Groups and many loyal sponsors and friends, the once dilapidated quarry site has become a subtropical oasis for all to enjoy.

With an annual rainfall of 1500-2000 mm per year and New Zealand's highest average temperatures, Northland possesses a truly subtropical climate. At Whangarei Quarry Gardens these climatic conditions, coupled with the sheltered and heat-radiating properties of a stone quarry, create an ideal microclimate for growing a plethora of native and exotic subtropical plants

Whangarei Quarry Gardens is a wonderful work in progress - historically fascinating, botanically captivating, and a beautiful reflection of the power of community. Please visit and enjoy the Gardens, new volunteers are always welcome!

Waka n Wave

‘Waka and Wave’ at is a landmark sculpture at Hīhīaua Point, at the entrance to the Whāngārei Town Basin. This major sculpture project was created in by Ngātiwai Sculptor Te Warihi Hetaraka in collaboration with another renowned sculptor, Chris Booth, who designed the enormous stone waves that appear to partially engulf the 20 metre long waka tētē (or fishing waka). The work can be read as a comment on colonisation, but also acknowledges the history of the site as a landing place for waka and later as a point of arrival for Pākehā sea-farers.

The Hatea Loop – Huarahi o te Whai

The Hatea Loop is a 4.2km fully accessible walkway that circles the Hatea River. The walkway links the Town Basin with Te Matau a Pohe and William Fraser Memorial Park on Pohe Island - from which a variety of activities can be enjoyed.

The entire loop is accessible for walking, jogging, pushbikes, all sorts of mobility aids and scooters and is also suitable for push-chairs. Dogs can also be taken but must be on a leash at all times.

Omahuta Forests

one of the largest remaining continuous tracts of native forests in Northland

Puketi and Omahuta form one of the largest remaining continuous tracts of native forests in Northland. The area is still a treasure house for native plants and animals, and includes populations of kiwi, kōkako, kākā and lesser short-tailed bats. The forests offer a range recreation opportunities including tramping, camping and hunting. The Omahuta Kauri Sanctuary Walk is a loop track that leads you through a stand of large majestic mature kauri. Logging of the giant kauri in this six-hectare sanctuary was stopped in 1951; the trees have been protected ever since. The Omahuta Kauri Sanctuary is home to the 'Ngapuhi Tree', ranked in the top 20 kauri trees of New Zealand.
