Whangaparapara Historic Trek

Whangaparapara has a fascinating timber trade, mining and whaling history. The first part of this trek takes you along a tramline track. The tramline was used to extract timber from local forests to be taken to Auckland to be milled. After a catered lunch, the second part of the trek takes you on to the remains of the last-established whaling station at Whangaparapara. Meet local characters Tony Litherland and his wife Carol who live aboard a homebuilt houseboat at the site of the historic whaling station.
