Warkworth Hotel & Accommodation

The upper North Island's Warkworth is about 64 km north of Auckland CBD, and is sometimes called the Kowhai Coast. The area has two regional parks to its name, Tawharanui (a stunner of a surf beach) and Mahurangi, as well as Puhinui Scenic Reserve. If you're fond of a drop, nearby Matakana has its wineries. An express ferry from Auckland will get you here in about half an hour. Wake up in a Warkworth room. Find one below.
