Here are a few things to enjoy:

  • Learn and see more at the Goat Island Marine Discovery Centre
  • See the reptiles at the Ti Point Reptile Park
  • Pick up a Leigh Walks brochure and stride away
  • See what fossils you can find at low tide at Matheson Bay
  • Beautiful beach walks – Pakiri, Tawharanui and much more!
  • Matakana Markets, village and movies
  • Sample some local wines at nearby vineyards
  • Check out some properties for sale – you know you want to stay

Matheson Bay Bush Walk

mathesons-bush-walkThis delightful walk from Matheson Bay Beach is one of Leigh’s best kept secrets.

The track goes up through the bush alongside a little creek, passing water holes and waterfalls. During November the taurepo (NZ gloxinia) is flowering, so see if you can spot some alongside the wooden walkway. Matheson Bay is also the favourite place for swimming by the locals. Take a walk along the shoreline too and look for the amazing fossils
