Bream Head Coast Walks

Walking New Zealand - - New Zealand Walks -

North­land's first two or three-day pri­vate un­guided walk, Bream Head Coast Walks, is sit­u­ated at Whangarei Heads and is an ideal en­vi­ron­ment for the visit­ing bird-watcher. The lodge has ac­cess to a num­ber of habi­tats to see dif­fer­ent species from shore­line to for­est ridge, in­clud­ing pas­ture, wet­land, re­gen­er­at­ing ti-tree and ma­ture broadleaf for­est. Around the lodge you may well hear kiwi, more­pork, pheas­ant and oth­ers. Across the pas­ture and wet­land to the beach you may see pukeko, pi­geon, hawk, rosella, bit­tern, and on the beach dot­terel, oys­ter­catcher, tern, shags, gulls, and oth­ers. On the Bream Head ridge­line with on­go­ing preda­tor con­trol in the area you may en­counter kaka, bell­bird, NZ fal­con and oth­ers. Or­nitho­log­i­cal notes are in­cluded with our track gui.
