Journey to Northland – New Zealand’s Subtropical North

Welcome to Northland - the most northern and only subtropical region of New Zealand.

Northland begins only one hour’s drive north of Auckland. Rich in history, this surprisingly large region is renowned for its vibrant Māori culture, spectacular coastlines, kauri forests, aquatic playground and marine paradise - the natural landscape is our speciality.

The region is a unique mix of great places to visit and things to see and do – tour both coastlines of New Zealand’s warmest region and discover picturesque beaches and marine adventures of every description. Meander through a myriad of small villages to the wharves where boats will take you to offshore islands and underwater worlds.

You’ll witness true stories and tall tales as you wander through the buildings and landscapes where some of New Zealand’s foundations were debated and agreed. You’ll trace the footprints of those who made history as you create your own memories of a lifetime in unforgettable untouched natural environments. Be sure to allow plenty of time to explore the Northland region. It is a vast area full of contrasts; where the people, history, culture and scenic beauty will have you wishing you could stay longer.
