Northland

Northland, the birthplace of New Zealand, is a place where twin coasts make for one exciting holiday destination. It is an amazing place to indulge the senses, relax and to revive one’s soul.

Northland’s history is rich and interesting. It is believed that the first Polynesian voyagers arrived in Northland during the 11th century. Today Waitangi is the seat of Maori culture, which is very much alive in this region.

Although rich in history, most of Northland remains unspoilt.
From its ancient Kauri forests to the hundreds of kilometres of stunning coastline, the region is a paradise for nature lovers.

The subtropical north lends itself to exploration, for those visitors preferring a single base, we suggest the Bay of Islands.

Don't miss:


The Bay of Islands


is a picturesque region with over 140 islands, secluded bays and an abundance of marine life.

Whether your desire is to swim with the dolphins, explore the Glow Worm Caves or walk along deserted beaches, the Bay of Islands has options to fit whatever interests you most.


Maori culture


Waitangi is one of New Zealand's most historic sites, being the place where Maori and European signed the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840.

The Treaty House estate is a must see for any visitor interested in New Zealand's history and culture.


Waipoua Forest


Waipoua Forest preserves some of the best examples of kauri forest remaining in New Zealand.

It is notable for having two of the largest living kauri trees, Tane Mahuta and Te Matua Ngahere.

Discover enormous 2000-year-old Kauri trees on a walk.
