Matiatia - best short walks from here

To the village, or a loop back here

1. Easy walking tracks away from the road and through the re-generating forest of Atawhai Whenua will take you to Oneroa village. Head up from the southern end of the beach, just over the creek bridge. 30 minutes one way.

2. The southern headland walk makes a loop back here, rejoining itself at the lookout on Nick Johnstone Drive. A bonus is the exhibition of some of New Zealand’s best contemporary architecture, too. 1 hour loop
