Northland presents you with the truly unique opportunity to explore the birthplace of New Zealand. The Maori cultural experiences tell of where it all began, like the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, which provide a fantastic journey of learning.

Then there’s also the story of two different coastlines: the rugged, soulful, simple west coast, and the relatively more sophisticated east coast. Take in some whale watching or a cruise, the warm waters being a favourite hangout for friendly, playful dolphins. For a sub-tropical feel with lush greenery, stunning beauty and a real ‘paradise’ vibe, spend some time in the beautiful Bay of Islands – with river, sea and rainforest at your fingertips.

Up here you’re escaping, feeding the soul. Whether you relax here, play here, or learn here, it’s worth discovering how beautiful the absolute north of NZ is.
