Day 8; Hukatere – Waipapakauri

4.5 Hours.

Awoke today to another amazing Hukatere Lodge breakfast 🙂

Gabrielle offered to ferry our backpacks ahead to Waipapakauri so we only had day bags today. Awesome luxury.

Took the Coastal Road that follows the shoreline between Hukatere and Waipapakauri today to get off the beach. Was a nice walk past heaps of road turn-offs marked by trinkets and stuff.
Arrived at Waipapakauri early afternoon and stayed at the holiday park. Good spot with camp ground amenities & small ice cream / beverages selection at office.
Obviously we had a ice cream :p

Set up camp, did laundry & ate dinner. Spent the rest of the evening chilling out in the tent powering up for the last wee beach stretch to Ahipara tomorrow.
