Northland offers many memorable tourist attractions for you to choose from. A visit to the Bay of Islands is an absolute must. We recommend visiting Waitangi (near Paihia) where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed. Whether you wish to learn about the Waitangi’s past, explore the grounds and buildings yourself or as part of a tour, you will find the visit most rewarding. Other attractions in Northland include Whangarei city/coastline, boat cruises, the picturesque settlement of Russell, Waipoua Forest on the west coast, beach / forest walks, scenic flights, Cape Reinga and Ninety Mile Beach (in the far north).
