Relax at the tranquil marina of Town Basin, located at the heart of Whangarei. Admire the fishing boats and pleasure yachts bobbing on the waves, or take a stroll along the waterfront heritage walk to the acclaimed "Waka and Wave" stone sculpture. Be sure to pause at the storyboards lining this walk to learn about the town's history and rich heritage. Dine at one of the area's restaurants, or browse the boutique arts and crafts stores. You can also stop by the marina's art gallery, or let the kids run off some steam at the large neighborhood playground.
