Today the teens and I got stuck into the outdoors and ventured out to a nearby walking track called The Tanekaha Trek right here in Mangawhai Heads. This is my brother in law with them, my sister and I were the ones taking photos.
There are two tracks you can take - we took the difficult one which all up was about 80 mins and leads to a large waterfall. There were lots of ups and downs - plenty of exercise to be had.
Along the way there were lots of little waterfalls, native trees & plants plus a stream which ran beside the trail.
We were all very tired by the end of it but it certainly was a perfect day for it.
