Karaka Bay

Day 7, Monday 28 August 2017

A trip to Karaka Bay in Glendowie is like stepping back a few decades in time. Any other beach in the area would be lined with multi-million dollar homes, but this has modest houses in a variety of states of repair. The only land access to the beach is via a steep narrow path.

A copy of the Treaty of Waitangi was signed on this beach on 4 March, 1840 – less than a month after the initial signing at Waitangi.

Distance travelled: 34 km. Total distance so far: 1042 km
