Historically it’s the place where all started: In 1840, at a place called Waitangi, the chief Hone Heke became the first of 46 to sign the founding document of bi-cultural New Zealand.
Northland is not only rich in history but has also an impressing subtropical nature experience to offer. From ancient Kauri forests, 90 Miles Beach & Cape Reinga, top diving locations and hundreds of kilometers of a stunning coastline – that’s Northland.
