A jutting tribute to a time long past, the Tolaga Bay Wharf was once the busiest on the East Coast of the North Island. Meat, produce, wood, hard goods, all came here to be on-loaded to coastal shipping on the longest wharf in New Zealand.
Recently the wharf has undergone a resurrection of sorts, with broken railings fixed, info signage added, and the carpark revamped. Today you can walk right to the tip - give yourself half an hour to walk there and back. Once there contemplate the mighty Pacific Ocean before you, before talking to some of the local Maori fishing for Kaimoana (seafood) for dinner.
