About us

Trail Drop Whangarei offers shuttle transport to Whangarei Heads for visitors who enjoy walking and hiking and prefer to self explore.

We are passionate about Whangarei Heads and sharing it's amazing beauty.

We have great local knowledge of the area and walking tracks. We stop at two of DOC's top rated walking tracks: Mt Manaia Track and Te Whara Track.



Where is Whangarei Heads?

Whangarei Heads is a stunning coastal peninsular located on the East Coast of Northland, New Zealand.

Comprising of 6,000 acres of historic native bush, volcanic peaks, white sand beaches and some of the top rated walking tracks in New Zealand.

Our why...

In our current modern lifestyles, more people have sedentary day jobs and with technology and devices now a huge part of our daily lives we are suffering disconnect from our loved ones and nature.

The mental, emotional and physical benefits of going for a walk through native bush or swimming in the ocean are huge and we want to give every visitor easy access to these benefits in this beautiful part of New Zealand.

You might ask ‘why can’t I drive myself?’

Exploring new places is exciting but can also be stressful, here are 7 reasons why to travel with us:

    •  The drive is beautiful - you don’t want to miss out on the scenery
    •  The drive is windy - you don't have to worry about driving a rural road that
        you don't know
    •  If you complete a walk you will be exhilarated but also tired and driving
        back might not be safe
    •  You don’t have to worry about leaving your car unattended
    •  If you are doing Te Whara Track, this is a one-way track, to walk back to
        your car, it’s a 5km walk on a windy rural road, which is unsafe
    •  We know the tracks as we walk them regularly
    •  We are locals, with great knowledge of the area



A little note...

The walking tracks and beaches are free of charge for you to enjoy, however we do ask that you treat the area with respect, stick to the walking tracks and take your rubbish with you.
