Your Hosts

Zander and Cath Ward will be your hosts for your Pahi Coastal Walk North Island Experience.

Zander is a 5th generation farmer on the Northern Coromandel, having been raised in Port Jackson, in the days when they went to town twice a year!

After a stint at university, some work in forestry followed by a two-year overseas travel experience, he returned to the family farm with Cath in 2001 to help his father.

Zander and Cath have been at Pahi ever since. They have three children (14 – 18yrs) who you may see on their motorbikes, farming or mucking around in the sea.

Our Team

Cath and Zander have an amazing team that work with them in Port Jackson on the farm.

The team helps both on the farm and with the walk – cooking and cleaning and making the experience an all-round highlight.

We also partner with the great guys at Hike and Bike Coromandel who run the Shuttle from Colville through to Port Jackson and back. They also provide a freight service for food and items to get to Port Jackson and provide the E-bikes

Friends and family are frequently arriving to distract the team from their work and “force” them to go fishing.

You’ll no doubt see their smiling faces during your time in Port Jackson.
