Waipu, North Island, New Zealand.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Waipu is a small town located on the shores of Bream Bay in the Northland Region of New Zealand. Five shiploads of Scottish immigrants arrived here during the 1850s. Visitors can discover their history and genealogy at the Waipu Museum which is full to the brim with immigrant treasures. A highlight of the town's calendar is the annual Highland Games held at New Year.

Waipu’s village centre is famous for its restaurants, cafes, antique store and galleries. The galleries sell a wide range of New Zealand artwork and are within walking distance of each other.

Waipu also offers great accommodation for the gay and lesbian traveler. Choices include gay friendly motels and motor lodges, hotels and guesthouses, bed and breakfasts, camping grounds and holiday parks, resorts and lodges, backpackers and hostel accommodation. With the range of choice and price on offer, there is something here for the most discerning and cost conscious traveler.

The town is a short distance from a variety of glorious beaches. As you follow the coast to Waipu Cove, Langs Beach and Mangawhai Heads, you'll enjoy stunning views of the Hen and Chickens Islands and an endless parade of perfect waves breaking on clean white sand just begging to be surfed.

For the more adventurous, there’s plenty to keep you occupied in Waipu. Bungy jumping, sky diving, kayaking, canoeing, rafting, off-roading, mountain biking, mountain climbing, gliding and parasailing are just some of the adrenaline pumping actives to be enjoyed here. And don’t forget that Waipu is most famous for its great waves and superb surfing.

For the more sedate, the estuary near the mouth of the Waipu River is great for bird watching, including New Zealand dotterels, oyster catchers and fairy terns. The 18 hole Waipu Golf Club is a challenge and a golfers dream. The three hour round trip Mangawhai Coastal Walkway offers extensive views out to the Hauraki Gulf and islands, and just 20 minutes drive from Waipu are the famous Waipu Caves.

So, for an adventurous outdoor destination offering fun, sun and relaxation, then Waipu, North Island has plenty to offer the gay and lesbian traveler.
