Always fun at Pahi

Pahi is a lovely spot and my go to place for a real Blob out.

The parking area with the old Hotel in the corner

It has a very reasonably priced community campground run by the locals and just recently they have invested in some gravel so can provide some all weather parking which is great. I’ve been here after some heavy rain in the past and it was very boggy so a great improvement.

Great outlook

I didn’t get the chaps name who served me in the office but very helpful and cheery.

Looking down from the road

After settling down Rafe, I went for a walk down to the Wharf where there was a local painting his boat. It was an older launch probably in the early 1920’s odd and he was doing a great job. I had a great chat to him while watching his roller dry 🙂 He would have been happy chatting all day but thought I’d better cut it short so he could finish the job 🙂

The new Gravel

Back at Rafe, I joined the neighbours who had two Caravans from both Dargaville and Whangarei for a natter.

How to get here.., From the Brynderwyn turnoff. Head to Paparoa and turn left down the Pahi Peninsula until you can’t go any further. Its about 5 k’s from Paparoa.

Lovely beach

Another great hideaway on the Kaipara harbour and great parking at a great price.

  1. Hi Linnie
    Thanks for that. We’ll keep that one up our sleeve for next time we’re in your neck of the woods.
    Cheers

    Yes Pahi is such a faraway place, it’s fun to explore these remote (ish) areas! Did you venture into the pub. Now that’s quite a scene being the one big gathering hole for the locals. We parked our 9m bus there at this campground a couple of years ago. Chris we have a ‘pop’ here near Pirongia if you and friends are wandering around this area. We have tons of parking and water. I enjoy your posts and photos.
