Orewa Backpackers ~ Hatfields Beach ~ Hibiscus Coast ~ Auckland

We are located on the beautiful Hibiscus Coast. Enjoy our gorgeous scenery, sandy beaches, parks and islands. Auckland City is only a short drive or bus trip away.

bbh-logo-member-web-100x85A very warm welcome from Orewa Backpackers accommodation, located just 30 minutes north of Auckland. Relax in a great atmosphere among the banana palms, with scenic views of the rural countryside. Orewa Backpackers’ budget accommodation is located close to, but not directly on Highway 1 to the north of Auckland, ideally suited as a starting point for your travels to the Northland of New Zealand. Two minutes walking brings you to peaceful Hatfields Beach, ideal for safe swimming. We are only a five minute drive (or a 45 minutes walk along the coast) to the Waiwera Hotpools. There is much to do and see in Hatfields, Orewa Beach and on the Hibiscus coast.
