Welcome to Northland and the Bay of Islands
With seemingly endless coastlines, towering kauri forests, culture and true-blue Kiwi hospitality, Northland gives visitors a glimpse at a bygone era in New Zealand.
This is a part of the country where the ice cream scoops are still massive, the smiles are warm and welcoming and the weather is almost-always sunny.
What’s not to love about that?
The Bay of Islands
Made up of more than 140 islands, this subregion really is unique in New Zealand. This area is known for its stunning beaches, rolling hills, fantastic fishing, Māori culture and charming towns. It’s well worth a visit!
Home to Russell, New Zealand’s first capital city, the region is still rich in history and attractions. There, you’ll find Waitomo (home to the country’s treaty grounds) and beautiful Paihia.
The Bay of Islands are ready and waiting for you.
Isn’t it time you visited?
