Waitangi Mountain Bike Park. The WMBP is amongst our newest attractions in The Bay. It offers trails of varying difficulty with great flow and features, from introductory downhill riding, jump trails, cross country and beginner trails. The trail network, designed by Jeff Carter from Southstar Trails, has grown rapidly over the past six months and the trails cater to all levels of ability. There are plenty of fast, flowing berms, rollers and jumps. Grade 2 and 3 runs are so well built, they’re still fun for more advanced riders. See http://www.wmbp.nz/

Waitangi Treaty Grounds and Museum. The Treaty of Waitangi was a defining moment in the nationhood of New Zealand. The grounds and museum are less than 10 minutes’ drive from the house and are well worth the effort. Try and take in the cultural experience and guided tour when you are there.
