Speaking of horses, they are well used by the locals in this area. You will often see Maori children riding up and down the main streets of the town, or perhaps the men heading out to do some hunting, rifle slung over their shoulder and several dogs following behind.
Turning the corner from the North East coast down the Eastern edge now. Te Araroa is the gateway out to the East Cape lighthouse (see review). It's a sleepy little town but like everywhere here in this part of the country, it's wild.
Steeped in Maori history and becoming more and more ignored by the rest of the country. Personally though, I think that all adds to the charm of the area.
