Anchorage has the first large camping area and hut in the national park from Marahau at the southern entrance.
Anchorage is well sheltered by headlands to the north and south so is the ideal spot for yachties to anchor their launches – hence its name. To the south of Anchorage is the Pitt Head Loop track and the quintessential golden-sand, crescent shaped Te Pukatea Bay. To the north of Anchorage, across a tidal estuary, lies Torrent Bay. During low tides, you can walk directly across the estuary to Torrent Bay in about 20 minutes. The high-tide track goes around the estuary and takes around 1 to 1.5 hours.
