Title: Shipping locations at Marsden Point, Whangarei, New Zealand
Post by: gwrdave on October 10, 2018, 06:36:02 am
Photo locations for Marsden Point are best done from Whangarei Heads which is opposite Marsden Point.

For tanker berths and ships arriving/departing through the heads take Whangarei Heads Road out of Whangarei then turn off at Bay View Road.

The wharves are best seen by turning off Whangarei Heads Road into Reotahi Road then onto Beach Road, this looks directly across the water to the wharves.

Marsden Point is the main port for crude oil imports to the NZ Refinery Co. and also exports of refined products. The main exports are logs, wood chips and triboard and further up is the cement works of Portland Cement.
