Tried to get to some DOC land near Tapora on the Kaipara Harbour. Unfortunately the gate was locked so carried until I got to a road called Journeys End. Had to take that one, it went to a small beach called Birds Beach. Parked on the DOC reserve at the end of the beach. Watched the sun go down in the west.
Went to Poutu Point, Ruawai, Tinapai and Journeys End. Was really blown away by what a liveable place the Kaipara Harbour was.
