Parking overlooking the estuary.

 

Whananaki North Boat Ramp has a stunning view over the Whananaki Estuary, and include a sealed parking area were self-contained motor caravanners can park overnight,

 

This is a great location if you're travelling with a boat or kayaks. The fishing is good in the estuary, and it's a nice alternative if the Whananaki Reserve is already full.

 

The Whangarei District Council's policy on these public parking areas is that, if there is no sign forbidding overnight parking, then certified self-contained motor caravanners can park overnight for a maximum of 3 nights and a limit of 2 vans.
