Pohutakawa 's for you Australian ladies are a large native New Zealand tree that flowers at Christmas time . We purchased another beach home(this time on the waters edge) at One Tree Point last year and this was our first Christmas so we eagerly awaited the flowering of our lovely old trees. The boat really is moored there and the fence posts really are that colour. This view is across the Whangarei Harbour to Whangarei Heads . I hope you enjoy the view as much as we do everytime we can be there.
