Northland, New Zealand is a subtropical haven of beaches, islands and bays, native rainforest and is culturally significant, being New Zealand’s first area of settlement.
The Northland Region stretches from Auckland to the very top of New Zealand. It is a story of two coastlines with the iconic Bay of Islands, as well as the Kauri Coast, the Far North, and Whangarei.
Encounter the magnificent Tane Mahuta, the biggest kauri tree in existence, amongst New Zealand rainforest near the stunning Hokianga harbour. Journey past the huge sand dunes and pristine beaches of the Far North to experience the northernmost tip of the country, where you can watch the seas of the Pacific Ocean and Tasman Sea collide.
Visit the stunning Doubtless Bay and then the beautiful Bay of Islands with its 144 islands and bays. Swim with dolphins, dive, fish, sail or play golf and visit the Waitangai Treaty Grounds, one of New Zealand’s most significant historic sites, along with Russell and Kerikeri, New Zealand's oldest settlements and buildings.
Northland's only city, Whangarei is close to the beautiful Bream Bay and Mangawhai beaches to the south, and Tutukaka with a world class marine reserve for diving and fantastic outlying marlin fishing areas.
