Explore the Beauty of Bay of Islands

The Bay of Islands region of the North Island is a stunning display of subtropical flora, blissful beaches and endless sunshine. A stunning example of New Zealand's diverse landscape, it's a fantastic contrast to the more rugged scenery found elsewhere in the country. 

The idyllic landscape of New Zealand’s northern region stretches from Auckland to the furthest reach of the country. A subtropical paradise of myriad beaches, ancient kauri forests and behemoth trees, this is somewhere truly special.  Often overlooked in favour of more commonly mentioned names, Northland’s coastline is an aquatic haven of adventure and relaxation, in equal measure.

Enriched by traditional Maori culture, this region hosts a number of dining, shopping and entertainment options which all have their roots firmly in their heritage.

Whether you choose from swim with dolphins, drive along Ninety Mile Beach or explore the natural harbour of Tutukaka, this urbane area is a captivating and colourful part of New Zealand’s landscape.
