Hokianga Experience - 5 February 2020

  • This week Kaikohe Rotary took a sunset cruise on the Hokianga harbour. 

  • Before going out on the water, we enjoyed a delicious buffet at the Horeke Hotel which owner Pete Maddren was proud to tell us is New Zealand's oldest remaining hotel in New Zealand. (There are older hotels but they are not in their original buildings). Thank you to Peter and the team for excellent hospitality.

  • Just before 7pm we headed to the nearby Horeke wharf where we boarded the MV Ranui. Skipper Craig Pinkney explained that the Ranui was built of kauri in 1945 and used for transporting wounded ex-servicemen to a hospital across Lake Rotorua. Our cruise took us down the Hokianga Harbour, past Kohukohu and toward Rawene, with Craig giving us an informative historical commentary.

  • We then turned around and headed back to Horeke, enjoying the decline of the light and arrival of sunset. Craig, Heidi and Sandy (the corgi) were excellent hosts. It was a fabulous evening. Everyone had a great time and the weather could not have been better. To find out more about the Ranui and cruising the Hokianga go to https://www.facebook.com/ranui.nz/.
