As majestic as ever.
Plus lots of places to stay.

Well done to the council, DOC and the NZMCA for making this a great place to stop.

If you haven't been to the NZMCA Park (sorry Members only) at the airport for a while, it's definitely worth another visit. It's come on such a long way, since it first opened.
You've now got full recycling facilities, free veggies and a book exchange.

Heading that way?
Be sure not to miss the 4:30 drinks on Fridays.

You've just got to love her!

Made even more special because you get to stop right on the edge of the lake at the outlet (another great DOC site).

Heading that way?
Don't forget to pick up your 5 dollar permit from the Kawerau isite that gives you access to the forestry road.

And while your there pick up the key for your free power for the night if you want to stay in Kawerau.
As if a free heated outdoor swimming pool and spa isn't enough to entice you to stay.
Kawerau has really gone out of it's way to make your stay a pleasant one.

Probably the reason that it is an official NZMCA Motorhome friendly town

Wet September

Thank goodness for sunny Whakatane, hot showers at  Matata (DOC), our No 1 ( First Love) Pop at Thorton and a few feeds of whitebait.
