Marina Mooching – Warkworth / Mahurangi River 

Over the weekend I had cause to visit an area that I had often passed by boat but never on land – the area I refer to is the ‘Old Cement Works’. Home these days to the very funky Mahurangi Marina. Its just 5 minutes from the Warworth township and as well as dockside berths, offers halibut and hardstand facilities.

There is a nice selection of woody / classic craft tied up and with the ruins of the cement works as a backdrop, its very pleasant. The grounds I imagine would be a popular picnic spot and there’s even a fresh water lake, photos below.

Enjoy the gallery

  1. The river is now dredged to 1.5 metres at low tide as far up as the Cement Works. We are dredging the top of the river to the Town Basin and that will be finished by 22 May. We will buoy the channel when the job is finished as the marks are far apart at present

  2. I keep Leisure Hour on the pontoons . Just put back in the water after antifoul and topside paint ( 2 weeks) Hardstand here is good and sheltered . Freindly staff and HALIBUT lunches are to die for.
