The Bay of Islands

The Bay of Islands is one of the most popular fishing, sailing and tourist destinations in New Zealand. With its sub-tropical climate, it is an ideal location for relaxing and enjoying all the area has to offer.

The 16km natural harbour, has several arms that extend into land containing interesting historic towns such as Paihia, Russell, Waitangi and Keri Keri. The area is also home to a number of beautiful Islands that can be visited by boat such as, Urupukapuka Island and Moturoa Island.


Paihia is the premier holiday destination for visitors to Northland and is located in the heart of the Bay of Islands. It is a great place to base yourself whilst you explore the area.

The area is rich with unique history that ties both Maori and European people together and was the first region of New Zealand.


The quaint historic township of Russell or “Kororareka” was the first capital of New Zealand.

Take a passenger ferry across from the Paihia warf which drops you at the Russell jetty and take a short stroll to Russell township.

Russell Mini Tour is a delight, and  you can explore Russell whilst gathering valuable local knowledge.


Waitangi has gained its historic significance mostly from being the location where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed on February 6, 1840.
