We continue our travel north and reach Hokianga Harbour, a huge inlet from the western Tasmanian Sea. About 150 years ago more than 130 ships arrived in that bay. Unfortunately about 30 of them stranded or sunk in the dangerous entrance of the bay, because of its sand bars, standing waves and currents. Later a signal point was installed on the south head of Hokianga Harbour, which we could not find anymore. Today there are very few ships in that deep bay.
