Northwest Chatham Island
The Northwest Chathams features diverse landscapes from coastal sand dunes to basalt columns and can be explored in a full day
Located north of Waitangi, the road sits above sand dunes and passes a series of lakes where visitors can enjoy spectacular views of large sand blow-outs and remnant kopi stands.
The rocky coastal road affords extensive views of the coast and long-dormant volcanic cones before heading across the central plateau towards the east coast.
