Things to do in Kawhia
The town has a very relaxing "rural" atmosphere which is great to soak up but if you feel like being more active then there is heaps to do. You could soak in a hot springs pool you dug yourself on the edge of the west coast surf beach, or catch the fish of a lifetime either from the shore or "over the bar" in one of the charter boats. Beach and harbour walks, harbour cruises, horse trekking, round of golf or taking a kayak for a paddle - there is something for everybody here.
Kawhia is also a harbour that is steeped in both Maori and European history. A short walk from the camp will lead you past both historical early settler buildings and ancient sites significant to the Tainui tribe.
