Make the most of everything that the Kowhai Coast, Matakana and Mahurangi area has to offer. The Rodney district boasts some of the finest regional parks, recreational areas and marine reserves in New Zealand, and they are all easily accessible from Martins Bay.
Explore the Matakana Coast:

Visit the many Matakana Coast vineyards and follow the wine trail around Matakana Coast wine country and Warkworth or in the Helensville and Kumeu Area
Visit the Mahurangi Honey Centre
Take a short trip to the Matakana markets on Saturday mornings
See a movie at the boutique Matakana Cinemas
Check out local arts and crafts – Morris + James Pottery, and the Brick Bay Sculpture Trail
Just a few minutes from Martins Bay, take a ferry from Sandspit to historic Kawau Island and visit the former Mansion House island residence of Governor Grey.
Visit Tiritiri Matangi, a unique island bird sanctuary that hosts some of the world’s rarest bird species.
For diving and snorkelling go to Goat Island marine reserve. Immerse yourself in the undersea world, or enjoy a tour on the glass-bottom boat.
For surfing, visit the beaches at Omaha, Tawharanui, Leigh and Pakiri.
Go horse riding at Pakiri Beach
For golf, there are excellent courses at Warkworth and Omaha, and there is a golf driving range on the road to Warkworth that also has cricket and softball bowling and pitching machines.
If you enjoy walking there are walking tracks that cover all kinds of terrain around the coastline, through native bush and forest, across farmland and along beaches.
Explore local Regional Parks – Scandrett (only half an hour’s walk from the lodge), Tawharanui, Mahurangi, and other local walking trails.

We have lots of information and brochures on local activities at the holiday park office.
