For natural wonders, fascinating Maori culture and the buzz of cosmopolitan cities, the North Island has it all and more. Explore the marine playground of the Bay of Islands, wander on pristine beaches fringed by lush native bush in the Coromandel or splurge on art and fine wines at blissful Waiheke Island. Stay in luxurious Auckland accommodation while island hopping around the Hauraki Gulf, or leave the city hussle behind and immerse yourself in yesteryear with the untouched beauty of Great Barrier Island. Feed the stingrays and kingfish while discovering the remote delights of the East Cape, or be mesmerised at Stonehenge Aotearoa in the gourmand’s paradise of sunny Wairarapa.
Waiheke Island boasts pristine beaches, stunning coastal headlands, vineyards, olive groves and stunning seaside villages.
The ultimate exploration of the far reaches of the central North Island’s West Coast and beyond.
