Northland New Zealand


Northland New Zealand
North of Auckland, you will find the Northland area (between the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean). With its sub-tropical climate, this is a very pleasant place to be all year around - winter is very mild. Northland is famous for its beautiful long white beaches and native Kauri forests. Activities in the region include diving, hiking, golf, and a lot more. The region is also well known for its food and wine trails encompassing the country's northern most vineyards at Kaitaia. Other wineries offer coastal views and cafés which cleverly combine Mediterranean ambience with a distinctive New Zealand flavour.
