About Whakatane


  • Nga Tapuwae o Toi Walkways (in the Footsteps of Toi) is a walkway that shows off Whakatane's natural beauties. Many of the locals walk or run these walks as they train for events. The walkway is a loop between Whakatane township and Ohope Beach: one side takes you along the coast line and through major reserves; the other takes you through beautiful bush settings. The total trip can be completed in 5-7 hours and can be demanding at times. Pack a rain coat and warm clothes, as the weather can change quickly. There are signposts detailing important history of the area. Some of the places are pa (Maori fortified village) sites, so please be respectful of these.
