Shandelle Battersby samples the soon-to-be completed cycle way linking the Bay of Islands and the Hokianga Harbour.
There’s a very peaceful spot at the innermost part of the Hokianga Harbour where you can pause a while atop a gentle hill, and look down at the place where, on February 12, 1840, 3000 Maori arrived by water and land for the biggest signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.

The harbour was awash with waka; the grounds of the Mangungu Wesleyan Mission, est. 1827, full of people. Both are empty today, a sleepy Sunday in early November. In November this year, when the Pou Herenga Tai Twin Coast Cycle Trail is complete and delivers cyclists almost to the property’s doorstep, this historic area will be regularly busy with people once again.
