North Island

The North Island’s gateway into the country is the City of Auckland, a vibrant cosmopolitan city built around two vast harbours.

 Visit Cape Reinga at the northern tip, the Ninety Mile Beach, or the magnificent native forests home to the towering kauri tree and the Bay of Islands, where pristine beaches provided the setting for the peace treaty between the Maori and the European settlers.

 

Further south is the rainforests and beaches of the Coromandel Peninsula, volcanic geysers and bubbling mud pools. Immerse yourself in the Maori culture in Rotorua, stroll among award-winning vineyards in Hawke’s Bay and the Wairarapa and enjoy its capital city, Wellington, home to the fascinating national museum Te Papa and excellent dining and outdoor experiences.
