Hi wonderful people, and apologies for resurrecting an old thread.

A colleague recently mentioned Pouto Pt, but I know little about it and with it being a 3 (ish) hour drive was wondering if anyone had more info.

I have 3 young Fisher-learners in tow, so wondering how safe it is with both mother-nature and locals, as the littlies enjoy casting and then running riots.

I do have 4wd, but not overly experienced off roading, so is the beach relatively forgiving?

Lastly it was mentioned to me that there are also dune lakes with fresh water fish, is that true and should you have a rod licence?

Sorry for lots of questions but intrigued to find a new great spot after several years going to Port Waikato.

Any info is greatly appreciated!

Hi all I'd be quite keen on a bit of info about the area too. We are shifting to Matakohe in a month . So are keen on exploring the Kaipara and surrounds by boat and 4wd. I too used to fish the Port and Kariotahi / rivermouth.

I often go to Pouto with my mates for a weekend camping. The key is tyre pressures.

It can get bloody soft. I drop down to 15psi at times and my utes 2.7tonne with me in it and camping gear for myself.

The point itself can get real nasty, there are a few spots with quicksand and with the tidal movements you can lose a vehicle fairly easily if you get stuck.

Its hard work on any vehicle above the high tide line.
