The Birthplace of New Zealand

As its name suggests, Northland is at the very top of NZ’s North Island, framed by the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea which meet at Cape Reinga. Forested with lush native trees – including the legendary giant kauri, endless golden beaches and secluded offshore islands, subtropical Northland is both a paradise for nature lovers and an aquatic playground. The area is rich in vibrant Māori culture and European heritage. Best enjoyed over several days, the 800km Twin Coast Discovery Highway touring route leads you on a circular journey from Auckland through subtropical Northland. It’s truly a journey of contrasts: the sophisticated East Coast, with the beautiful Bay of Islands and Whangārei; the enchanting West Coast’s ancient forests and rugged coastline; and the Top of the North, encompassing Doubtless Bay, 90-Mile Beach and Cape Reinga, a place of spiritual significance for Māori.
