The local grocery store and other shops are just a five minute walk from home, going north along SH1 (State Highway 1) towards Whangarei CBD.
Post office and pharmacy. All you need...
Looking south along SH1.
There are many of these Four Square stores around Whangarei - just about every main intersection has one.
A local brew - pretty conventional beer - great. The prices seemed about the same.
