Whangarei has lots to offer the visitor, and the Kingswood Manor Motel is very conveniently situated as an ideal launch pad to visit these.
Whangarei Town Basin
A 5-minute drive and you are in the heart of downtown Whangarei where the peaceful town basin provides a lovely place for a coffee next to the marina. Tourist shops and art galleries have some beautiful crafts on sale, while the Hatea Loop walkway offers a scenic 4km stroll for the more energetic vistiors.
Whangarei Heads and Tutukaka Coastline
Just a short 30-minute drive away are the beautiful Whangarei Heads and Tutukaka coastline. These offer some of the our country's most spectacular white-sand beaches and walking tracks.
Whangarei Falls is located in Whangarei Scenic Reserve. The classic curtain waterfall is part of the Hatea River and one of the most popular swimming spots in the area. Easy access and a well-maintained Scenic Reserve make this waterfall one of New Zealand's must-see waterfalls.
Whangarei Golf Club
The Whangarei Golf Club is situated only a 5-minute drive from our motel. Some of the course is set in native bush and can be a test for the serious golfer and still be fun for the social player. The club welcomes visiting golfers keen to play a round.
