We got sandwiches and drinks in Kaitaia and drove North in the rain to the parking lot at Cape Reinga. It was foggy and raining when we got there but as we were walking down to the lighthouse the sun came out. The views along the path were spectacular and we got lots of pictures. There were quite a few people on the path but it wasn't too crowded.

You're in Northland, you have to go here.
Its that simple
Take a raincoat / windbreaker, as it can get both cold and wet up there, and its a longer walk than I anticipated down to the lighthouse from the carpark so ensure your kids have gone toilet there.

The most northern point in New Zealand, wonderful place to visit. You can easily get to the entrance by car and then walk along the paths that lead you to the lighthouse.
It is a pretty easy walk down, but a little harder for some coming back up, however plenty of places to rest along the way. Cape Reinga has wonderful views so take your camera. If you have a clear day you can even see the Tasman Sea meet the Pacific Ocean currents with crashing waves in the distance. There are plenty of plaques to read about how it was created and what it means to Maori people so is a very spiritual place. Take your time and enjoy the experience and the amazing view, it takes a while to get there, however, is very much worth the long road trip.

This is so worth doing. Got there early before all the coach tours. The iconic lighthouse at the tip of north island. Sun shining and a Maroi guy randomly out of view began singing it echoed all around was very moving.

We have a wonderful and enjoyable walk with three over 60's. It took us 30 minutes walking down to the lighthouse and 40 minutes to walk back.
We were lucky to have a lovely sunny day
