We are situated approximately 30 kms from Whangarei in the Pataua North village and across the road from the Pataua Estuary.  We are ideally situated to cater for outdoor and coastal acitivities including sheltered swimming in the estuary and surfing at the oceanside.

We are located at  17 Aubrey Road, Pataua North, on the main road that leads into the village.  You reach here via Whareora Road, or from Glenbervie via Harris Road.  Pataua South and Pataua North are linked by a short walk across the footbridge.   

Features include the Pataua River and the Parawanui (south side) Beach which is a 2½ km   walk. There is an abundance of natural history and sea life, all providing excellent opportunities for education and fun activities.  These include beach walks, rock pool exploration, seafood gathering, local history, swimming, water sports and the famous Pataua Bridge jump!   

Surfing lessons, organised walks, snorkelling activities and kayaking can be arranged to cater for school camps as a group rotational activity.
