New Zealand


Northland

Northland is a large region connected by the Twin Coast Discovery Highway route, which starts and finishes in Auckland City. The area boasts a sub-tropical climate and is known for its heritage, beautiful beaches and majestic Kauri forests.

Our holidays are centred on Russell, Paihia and Kerikeri in the Bay of Islands, an area world famous for its big game fishing, its pristine waters are home to an amazing array of fish and marine life. Yacht charters and cruises, deep-sea diving - this water paradise has it all.

You can fly in to Kerikeri Airport or drive from Auckland to Paihia in just 3 hours by car or scheduled coach service, 5 hours if you go via the mighty Waipoua Forest, taking in the fabulous Matakohe Kauri Museum.
