Walk Sunset Beach Sun 28th Feb

Sunset Beach at Port Waikato Sun 28th Feb

Meet at 9.30am for a 9.45am start as it will be low tide then and better for the walk. The sands are black there, so kinder to the dog’s feet (and ours) before the sun gets too hot.

See flyer for full details.

Sunset Beach at Port Waikato is south of Auckland but a fascinating place and one the dogs and owners will really enjoy. There are miles of beach for the dogs to explore and for those who would like it is certainly good swimming and popular with surfers.
It seems a long drive out but is only 30 minutes from Pokeno. Full directions below.
These walks are suitable for any healthy dog and owner of reasonable fitness but the
dogs must be over 10 months old and be under fairly good control.
Walking will be mostly on the beach so shoes can be worn or not as wished but
everyone will need towels for afterwards as the dogs will take full advantage of the
sea. It is also advisable to take some water for your dogs.
We love to see all the family on these walks and they are not exclusive to Labradors.

If you have any queries please ring Sally Felton 0272294803

Southern motorway to Pokeno.
At Pokeno take Pokeno Rd to Tuakau – this becomes Whangarata Rd.
Drive straight to the end – don’t go into Tuakau, and turn left to Port Waikato.
Go over a bridge and turn right where there is a sign to Waikato Holiday Camp.
Carry along this road until you see a sign which says Sunset Beach along with other
signs on the same post.
You will end up at a big parking area right by the sea we will meet there.
