And of course, make your way to the northern tip of the country to visit Cape Reinga. For a full Northland experience, try out the Twin Coast Discovery Highway. Head up along the Kauri Coast, up to Cape Reinga, back towards the Bay of Islands, and then back along the coast to Auckland.

Places to Visit near Northland Region


Cape Reinga Lighthouse

Perched at the spectacular northern tip of the North Island, the white-washed Cape Reinga lighthouse is reached by a gentle 1km stroll flanked by some of New Zealand's most spectacular beaches. To the southwest and fringed by dunes, Te Werahi Beach curves gently to touch Cape Maria van Diemen, while east from Cape Reinga, the gob smackingly beautiful Spirits Bay is known to local Maori as the final departure point for souls heading to the spiritual homeland. This is the northern most point of New Zealand so really is a most-stop location. You can see where the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean and the area has a large role in Maori mythology. This really is a special place so do try to make it up here, it's worth the effort.

Kamo Wildlife Sanctuary

Resident African lion "Zion" Kamo Wildlife Sanctuary is a privately owned sanctuary located near Kamo, Whangarei, New Zealand.. The facility houses 28 cats of varying species, mainly lions and Bengal tigers, a black leopard, and two African cheetahs. The park is privately run and is funded through tours and donations. While a few of the cats kept are semi-wild, the majority of the cats have been hand reared at the park.

Action World

There is no other place like this on earth! Literally! Freddy and Carol Osler (former World Champions on the Flying Trapeze) have developed an airbag landing system that allows for all manner of exciting activities right here at Action World, which hitherto could only be performed by wearing a safety harness. No question – if you're looking for entertainment in Paihia which includes activities for the whole family – then visit us for a day of fun-filled excitement! There is a large tent to sit under to watch the activities, drinks and snacks are available from vending machines or bring the esky and cook for the family with free BBQs for your use. Or mom and dad can suntan by the duck pond while the kids spend hours exhausting themselves.

The Kauri Museum

The award winning Kauri Museum tells the story of our pioneering settlers through the lens of the Kauri Industry. The museum specializes in the legacy of our Kauri Forests; specifically the strong durable timber and the highly prized Kauri Gum.

Experience the adventures of our pioneering settlers and appreciate the legacy of our kauri forests.

- Explore our interactive hands-on displays.

- Venture into our historic buildings and escape into the pages of our history books.

- Get to know the people behind the mannequins and the stories they have to share.

The Kauri Museum offers something for all ages. It is also a centre of excellence for kauri research with an extensive collections archive.

The Kauri Museum recounts the history and the legacy left behind by our ancient Kauri Forests (second in size only to the American redwood tree). In addition to preserving our past, the Museum has a role to play in conserving their future, collaborating to “Save our Forests”.
