Houhora is a tiny harbour township that was once a centre for gumdiggers, but now is renowned for its super-sized subtropical fruits and vegetables, sold at tiny roadside stalls, and its superb fishing, an extremely popular local pursuit.

Visitors can join in the fun on a fishing charter, and if you want to see trophy-sized fish, call into the Houhora Big Game and Sports Fishing Club for an impressive line-up of black and blue marlins, and blue fin tuna.

Other activities include visiting the Subritsky Homestead, built to last in 1860 from swamp-kauri floorboards, rock, and a plaster made of powdered seashells, beachcombing, fossicking for gum, scuba diving, and hunting for pheasant, duck, and wild pigs.

There are no Houhora Campervan Hire depots to our knowledge, with most customers preferring to hire campervans in Auckland (which has a wide range of choice) or rent campervans in Whangarei (which has a limited number of campervan rental vehicles on offer).
