Sunny Northland has a relaxed lifestyle with lovely islands, bays and beaches around the extensive unspoilt coastline.
Perfect for water sports, surfing, boating, fishing, sailing, diving and swimming in the warm waters,
but the bush and the forest are also ideal for walking, hiking and mountain biking.
Northland also has some of New Zealand’s top international golf resorts at Kauri Cliffs and Carrington.
For art and culture lovers Northland has an abundance of artists and there are galleries and exhibitions across the region.
Enjoy the cultural festivals, events and performances held throughout the year.

Northland has a rich Maori and European history and the Maori culture is still very much alive.
The Treaty of Waitangi, was signed in the Bay of Islands in 1840 and the legacy of the earliest European settlers
can be seen in the historical buildings and museums.
