Matakana is a fast-developing region rich in history, wine and recreational activities. Warkworth, a venerable port on the Mahurangi River, has interesting art, craft and antique shops. Northeast, you come to the delightful old river town of Matakana. Here new wineries, olive groves and kiwi fruit farms are developing. Cafés such as the one at Morris and James Pottery Tileworks dot the landscape. At Omaha there is a beautiful white sand beach. Past the fishing village of Leigh, is Goat Island Marine Reserve for snorkeling and scuba diving. During the summer take a Glass Bottom Boat trip.
