Bay of Islands

Alexis Rose

Northland is the northern part of the North Island, north of Auckland.

Giant kauri trees, stunning coaslines, top diving spots and history make up northland.

Northland's coastline embraces the rugged west coast (Tasman Sea with Australia on the other side) towering sand dunes, isolated beaches and "beach roads" like Ninety Mile Beach.

The calmer seat coast (Pacific Ocean) whales, dolphins, fish thrive.  Also on this coast are great dive sposts, including the Rainbow Warrior.

Places in Northland include:

Whangarei - largest city in the region

Mangawhai heads
- a beach near Mangawhai - a tiny town in south Northland

Kaitaia- in the Far North

Bay of islands including Kerikeri and Romantic Russell.
