Cobden Bar, Breakwater and best Fish and Chips
Surfing: A good left bar break.
Chippies: Cannot be rivalled anywhere in the experience of NZPlaces
Breakwater: The floodwall on this side of the river curves wide to the north and atop has a carpark for freedom campers, and a memorial for the multitude of ships lost here over the decades. Some actual wrecked ships can be seen in certain tides and conditions.
