I've done most of the coastal walks in an around Whangarei and this is definitely one of the best. The view from the peak rock right before you head down towards Oceans is amazing! Track can get pretty slippery so wear appropriate shoes.

This track is well worth the hike, providing excellent harbour and ocean views as well as some great cardio. The 40-45 minute stair climb from Urquharts certainly gets the heart racing! Mt Lion is a perfect place to catch your breath while enjoying the beautiful...More
