Pataua Northland


Hailam , 8

My story is about my favourite place Pataua is special to me because it has a lot of things we do as a family. My aunty has been camping every Christmas out Pataua since she was 5 years old and everything she has learnt about Pataua she teaches me. The water is clear as glass and on the sunny days the sand is as hot as fire. Pataua is as beautiful as a Pohutukawa tree and a safe place to be while on holiday or just visiting.
