Dotted along State Highway 35 and throughout rural backcountry, Tairāwhiti is filled with hidden gems and unique East Coast experiences.

A beach hopping paradise, come for a surfing safari or road trip along the iconic State Highway 35, or head inland for a picnic at the stunning Rere Falls or enjoy a natural adrenaline rush at Rere Rockslide.
