The village of Waikolsaua is known for its amazing turquoise waters and the spectacular Hilton Wākehā Beach.
Now, the Waikoles have joined forces with Waikole National Park Authority to create a unique experience to visit the park.
The village has set up a special visitor centre that provides information on the park and its surroundings, including the natural beauty of the Waigū and the Hākari Islands.
It is also hosting a special outdoor cooking and dining experience.
The centre is open to the public from 7am to 7pm every day from October until March.
You can find out more about the visitor centre, as well as a list of the best restaurants in the village, by visiting the centre website.
The Waikooli Wāka, a popular and historic fishing village near Waikikīla is also home to a unique cultural site known as the Māori Cemetery.
The area is surrounded by an ancient māori burial ground and there are several sites where māoris have made a special pilgrimage to the cemetery.
There is also a museum dedicated to māoritanga, a small ethnic group who migrated from New Zealand to Australia around 1800 AD.
The site contains a māoro cemetery and is currently under renovation.
Waikokā has also been making strides towards protecting its wildlife.
The island is home to the iconic Waikangi, which is endemic to the area.
The bird has been declared endangered by the United Nations.
