In the Bream Bay Region you will find Waipu Cove on the coastal road between Waipu and Mangawhai. Fabulous unspoiled golden sands, surf, views out to sea of Whanagrei Heads and the Hen & Chicken Islands
Waipu is the nearest township, a friendly coastal town with a Scottish heart.
Waipu was the centre of a significant Presbyterian settlement led by Rev. Norman McLeod, a Presbyterian Minister who led his people from the Highlands of Scotland to New Zealand via Pictou and St. Ann’s in Nova Scotia and Australia. Five shiploads containing over 800 settlers arrived at Waipu in the 1850s.
