We went in to Rawene stopping off at the Memorial to Opo, the Dolphin, on the way.
The Ferry runs between Rawene and Kohukohu.
Apart from having morning coffee with a delicious lemon cake and lunch of flounder cooked in foil at the Boatshed Cafe we also walked around Rawene including the boardwalk through the mangroves. The photo below is the only one I seem to have of that walk.
We then went on the road south to a puzzle museum and shop and outside found this lifesize elephant which was previously at Auckland Zoo.
Just by the Puzzle place was a bush walk to a waterfall.
