Where we are

Mangonui from HihiCaptain Butler's House, Hihi


We are located in Doubtless Bay on the Twin Coast Discovery Highway touring route and you will find us an ideal base for visiting the best of Northland - from Bay of Islands to Cape Reinga. Hihi is on the east shore of Mangonui Harbour just across the water from Mangonui township, once centre of the whaling trade. Hihi Beach is a beautiful swimming beach and there is a full range of shops in Mangonui and Coopers Beach. There are boat launching ramps nearby at Mill Bay and Taipa. For more information about this area, visit Doubtless Bay Online.

How to get here

There are one or two daily return flights from Auckland to Kaitaia Airport (about a half hour drive away) and four or five daily return flights to Kerikeri Airport (about 45 minutes drive) operated by Air New Zealand Link. There is a daily bus service to and from Auckland which sets down in Mangonui. Rental cars at Kaitaia Airport are available from Northland Car Rentals.

Travelling here by car by the direct route using State Highway 1 and State Highway 10, the journey time from Auckland airport is about four and a half hours without stops. Travelling the Twin Coast Discovery Highway - a world-class touring route leaving from, and returning to, Auckland - requires at least two days in each direction to visit the many interesting and beautiful attractions along the way. Visit Go Northwest for more information.

Coming from Bay of Islands by State Highway 10, pass by the turn to Taupo Bay and the next major turn to the right, before you reach Mangonui Harbour, is signposted Hihi. Continue for five kilometres and you will see the sign and turn in to Hihi Olive Estate on the right.
