Cape Reinga / Te Rerenga Wairua is the most northern point of New Zealand accessible by road, and located more than 100 km North of the nearest small town of Kaitaia.
It is the place where the two oceans (Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean) that surround the country collide, creating a 'must see' for photographers and visitors alike.
Cape Reinga is also known as a spiritual place. Te Rerenga translates to leaping place of the spirits. For Maori, it is believed this is the point in which your spirit departs the mainland of Aotearoa and moves on to the underworld / afterlife Reinga.
It is recommended to allocate a full day to visiting Cape Reinga and the surrounding area.
