“Te Papatowai”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

Visit the gypsy caravan of curiosities. Pay and go on up to the garden/theatre. Have a coffee. Be amazed at automata large and small. And the estuary is lovely. Stayed at Erehwon self contained unit several times over the years since they are very nice.

“Another great New Zealand beach”
Reviewed 5 January 2013 via mobile

Just below the Papatowai Village is a picnic area and access to the Papatowai Beach. Its quiet and relaxing for lunch. We bought coffees from the lost gypsy caravan and laid on the grass eating and enjoying the sun. Afterunch a walk along the beach was called for. The tide was low so tbe beach was wide. Plenty of space to spread out and look for shells. We went to the end of the point where there was a seat looking out over the estuary.
Really nice place to be.

Thank Bruce M
