Opononi & Omapere

Opononi and Omapere are neighbouring villages at the entrance of Hokianga Harbour. There are some good accommodation options and beautiful ocean and harbour views, otherwise activities and facilities are fairly limited.


The massive sand dunes at the North Heads are very cool natural phenomena that you can ride down on a sand board. Ferry rides to the dunes can be arranged in Opononi and the Hokianga Information Centre and Museum is in Ompaere.
