Fodor's Review

Sixty-four kilometers (40 mi) south of the Waipoua Forest along the Kaihu River, you'll come to Dargaville, once a thriving river port and now a good place to stock up if you're planning to camp in any of the nearby forests. It has some good craft stores, too. The surrounding region is best known for its main cash crop, the purple-skinned sweet potato known as kūmara. You'll see field after field dedicated to this root vegetable and shops selling it cheaper than

anywhere else.
