The Opotiki District is one of the finest natural 'Family Holiday Playgrounds' in New Zealand. Opotiki is the perfect holiday destination for the family, large or small groups will enjoy the natural beauty and endless activities the Opotiki District has to offer. With so much to do in such a small town Ōpōtiki has something for everyone.

Ōpōtiki offers an array of activities with many scenic hikes and walks, biking the Motu trails, kayaking the Ohiwa Harbor or Ōpōtiki river mouth, fishing, swimming or walking along many of the beautiful beaches, chartering out to fish at the mussel farm, golfing the 18 hole course or just roaming about and enjoying the various sights to see.

The history of Ōpōtiki and surrounds would fill volumes. A visit to Tahuhu o te Rangi (The brand new Ōpōtiki District Library & Research Centre) would prove this true, or you could pop in to the Ōpōtiki Museum in the historical heart of Ōpōtiki on Church Street and see for yourself.
