The Northland Region (Māori: Te Tai-tokerau, also Te Hiku-o-te-Ika, 'the Tail of the Fish (of Maui)'), is one of 16 regions in New Zealand. It is, as the name suggests, the northernmost of New Zealand's administrative regions, the main centre being the city of Whangarei Northland is a beautiful place steeped in Maori history and boasting many scenic wonders.

It features golden sunny beaches, pristine forests, hidden coves and unique harbours. The clear, tranquil waters are just waiting for aquatic sports enthusiasts to start surfing, scuba diving, sailing or fishing. The water is also a haven for marine life such as dolphins, and swimmers can enjoy frolicking in close proximity with them at several locations. Northland is also where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed in 1840. The Bay of Islands is the one of the most popular Northland destinations, featuring 144 different islands containing all types of unique flora and fauna. Over on the west coast there are giant kauri trees and vast undulating sand dunes that are forever being sculptured by the wind. The northern tip of New Zealand, known as Cape Reinga, is a rare place where one can see the waves of the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea collide in a graceful dance of power and might. There is something for everyone in Northland and all visitors are welcomed with open arms and embraced by the local people. Come and see what they can offer you; it’s a place where New Zealand comes to life.
