Day Two: The Cook House to The Shearers Quarters
Hosts: Jenny & Chris Bargh
Degree of difficulty: easy
Distance: 8km - 11kms
Linger over breakfast before setting off on the shortest and easiest of your three days. Meander along the coast taking time to enjoy this remote and unique slice of New Zealand. Visit the historic Opua Shipwreck if you wish, take in the seals at Manurewa Point, visit Shirley’s Garden or simply beach comb for treasures to take home with you. Jenny and Chris will be on hand to greet you on arrival at The Shearers Quarters where you can have a break and drop your back pack before heading up to The Trig. A gut-busting climb will be rewarded with unsurpassed views out across the ocean.
With your appetite restored after the day’s activities Jenny will present you with your sumptuous evening meal. Chris has a keen interest in the local history, and enjoys sharing his wide-ranging knowledge and answering any questions you may have.
