Stunning subtropical coastline and dense native forests. With a population of 140,000 Northland has no high rise buildings and no traffic lights north of Whangarei. Sheltered coves with golden sand that can be found along the east coast to the west coast sand dunes and breakers where horse-riding and surf-cast fishing is a way of life. .

Go skuba diving on the east coast or snorkel with the fishes at the Goat Island marine reserve or Swim with the dolphins at Paihia, the native forests can still be explored - not just at the large well-known forests like Waipoua and Trounson, but you will also find many small forests in out-of-the-way places where you can tramp and explore...

For the energetic, there is hunting, fishing, tramping, orienteering, swimming, skuba diving, surfing, sailing and wind surfing - just about everything except snow!
