Omaha is a small beach town on Omaha Bay in the Rodney District, in the north of New Zealand. It is located 74.7 km north of Auckland. It is on a sandspit that adjoins Tawharanui Peninsula and separates Whangateau Harbour from Omaha Bay. The nearest sizable town is Warkworth which is situated 16.8 km south west of Omaha.
The sandspit of Omaha was formed during the last glacial period. The beach sediment composition is over 70% quartz sand, which gifted Omaha the natural “white” appearance.
Omaha Spit has been identified by the Department of Conservation as a “significant breeding site for the endangered New Zealand dotterel. As a result The Omaha Shorebird Protection Trust was established in 2009 to monitor the dotterel population at Omaha.
