Rawene is an historic town known as the car ferry town where the vehicular ferry departs on a regular basis to transport travellers across to the north side of the harbour. Rawene is one of the oldest settlements in New Zealand and it has an interesting bi-cultural history. It has a small supermarket, cafe, garage and petrol station, takeaways, art and craft galleries, chemist and hotel. Your hosts are locals and can help make your stay a memorable one. Meals and tours by arrangement.

Rawene is 15 minutes from Opononi made famous by Opo the dolphin in the 1950s, 45 minutes from Tane Mahuta, the majestic kauri tree in Waipoua forest, and a 15 minute ferry crossing away from the historic township of Kohukohu. It is a couple of hours away from Te Rerenga Wairua, Cape Reinga and a good base for a day trip to the Far North.
