Oakura

You'll enjoy picturesque Oakura for its relaxed atmosphere, family-friendly beach, vibrant cafes and close-knit community.

Oakura is an eclectic mix of stress-free baches and million-dollar beach houses. A quiet surfer’s community was transformed by the arrival of Tom Cruise, Billy Connolly and a film crew in 2003 when Warner Bros. Pictures' The Last Samurai was filmed.

Oakura is a hive of creativity. If you have the time, make sure you check out the many artists, jewellers and craftspeople who have established studios in and around the village.

Also, be sure to look out for the world’s biggest surfboard on the main street just before the petrol station.
