Waihau Bay Lodge, Waihau Bay

Waihau Bay on the East Coast seems a remote place to find a historic hotel, but this small settlement was established in the 1870's, complete with Post Office/store. The hotel and store still remain in htis beautiful spot. It was an excellent place to take a short break.

Masonic Hotel, Opotiki

Opotiki has one of the most complete and original late 19th century town centres. On a prominent corner in the centre is the Masonic Hotel. It made an excellent lunch stop on our way to Waihau Bay. The Indian restaurant has excellent food.
