New Zealand Walk: Bream Head Coast Walks a bird watch­ers de­light

Walking New Zealand - - Contents - By Lyn Mered­ith

Book for four but only pay for three in May or Oc­to­ber. Who could re­sist it! Not us!! Self guided but fully catered. That was Bream Head Walks, run by the Pear­sons on Ody Road, Bream Head near Whangarei.

We ar­rived late af­ter­noon on quite a mis­er­able day and it was lovely to walk into a warm com­fort­able lodge. Well more a home re­ally with all the mod­ern con­ve­niences and such lovely soft car­pet. Af­ter a hot drink we set­tled in. Claire had left be­fore din­ner snacks and a day’s menu with in­struc­tions on what to do with the food left for our evening meal, break­fast and lunch. This oc­curred ev­ery day.

If you do these walks you are given a track guide and map/ or­nitho­log­i­cal notes.
