Waharau Regional Park (238 hectares), extending inland from the Firth of Thames to the Hunua Ranges, provides a diversity of scenery and forest cover. With a large network of tracks and backcountry camping, Waharau provides a good weekend's adventure. Occupied by Maori and then used as a source of lumber during the gold rush days around Thames , Waharau has some large remnants of hard beech forest and regenerating native bush. There is safe swimming at the beaches and a pleasant flowing stream at the back of the park.
