Cape Brett Track starts at the beautiful Oke Bay in Rawhiti.
Oke Bay is rated one of the best in Northland.
From the land above this beach you get breathtaking views.
Global opera star Kiri Te Kanawa, who has a holiday home nearby, considers this her favourite beach.
Dolphins often come into this bay to play so if you are lucky, you’ll see them. If you have time, you’ll be able to get into the water and swim with them.
After this amazing start at Oke Bay, you’ll start walking the track and enter native and regenerating bush with streams and places to stop, sit, and admire the views.
The first hour is a steady but not too arduous climb to the first lookout shelter where you’ll find fresh drinking water, seating, and a cleared area with expansive views of the entire Bay of Islands. Incredible!
After your rest, drink, and photo shoot you’ll progress along the spine of the Cape Brett peninsula for another 10 minutes or so when you come to a junction in the track.
Here you can either continue straight ahead towards Cape Brett or take a right turn down to a spectacular forest of native and iconic Kauri, 15 or so minutes from the junction.
