Sleeping

Accommodation – including holiday parks, hostels and motels – is largely limited to the settlements of Opononi, Omapere, Kohukohu and Rawene.

Eating

Rawene, Opononi and Waimamaku have good cafes but, aside from that, the Hokianga dining scene is disappointing. Flounder is a local specialty, and worth seeking out. Fish and chips is a good fallback.
