Meretoto/Ship Cove was Captain James Cook’s favourite New Zealand base during his three voyages of exploration. The area holds key cultural heritage stories told in a beautiful sheltered cove with a lush coastal forest backdrop.
Observe seals and seabirds, explore historic pā and whaling sites and enjoy clifftop views of the sea and mountains. Suitable for families, the whole walkway takes three hours but you can also explore a range of shorter tracks.
