Kairara Rocks/Dukes Nose Hike

Kairara Rocks/Dukes Nose Hike

We did this hike in March of this year, leaving from Totara North.  Beautiful scenery along the track.  About 2hrs one way.  The Dukes Nose rock climb was not easy for me – I was right out of my comfort zone – but I did it.  The view from the top out to the Whangaroa Harbour entrance was well worth it!
