Unahi lies at the southern end of Rangaunu Harbour, at the base of the east side of the Aupouri Peninsula in Northland, New Zealand. The fishing industry is in decline and the processing plant at Unahi Warf is disused.
Few people detour to Unahi, which is a short distance from Waimanoni and Waipapakauri off Highway 1. Most people simply pass by on their way to 90 Mile Beach and Cape Reinga. Unahi is on the Cattle Egret migratory route between New Zealand and Australia, and regular countings of the birds takes place here.
There are a few other settlements around Rangaunu Harbour, including Kaimaumau a little to the north and Rangiputa on the western side of the Karikari Peninsula. Rangaunu Harbour is covered on various Far North Hovercraft Tours which depart from Rangiputa, Kaimaumau, Houhora Tavern and Houhora Heads.
Unahi is 12km north of Kaitaia on Highway 1 and Unahi road. It is 104km south of Cape Reinga and 35km west of Mangonui on Doubtless Bay (Highway 10 to Awanui and then 1 north).
