Hokianga Information Centre

29 State Highway 12, Opononi
Omapere, Northland
Hokianga Visitor Centre is near the Opononi Hotel.

A statue in the beach resort commemorates 'Opo the Friendly Dolphin' who made Opononi famous in the summer of 1955-56 when she played with the locals and tourists.

Rare film footage of Opo playing with children in the harbour is on Pictorial Parade #47, link below.

Whispering Trails and Footprints, links below, are the guides in the area, with a great depth of local knowledge. Legend, myth and bautiful native bush all merge for a spiritual experience on guided walks.
