"This refinery may well deserve the prize for the greatest beauty of a heavy industry site in the world" -- Wade Doak, Conservationist, October 2006
Northland is home to golden beaches fringed by Pohutukawa trees,
secluded coves and tranquil harbours. Coastal walks and
sought-after dive spots abound. Just offshore, predator-free
islands are home to all kinds of rare species, whilst offering
great diving as well!
In the Bay of Islands you can find thrilling adventure or
perfect peace. For travellers with time to spend, it's the ultimate
outdoor playground. Join the locals in their favourite pastimes of
boating, surfing, fishing or just lazing around in the warm
northern sunshine. With trails through native forest and
outstanding views, it's little wonder it is New Zealand's
Northland's shopping, dining and entertainment attractions
continue to grow in popularity, while a distinctive local culture
and strong Maori representation embraces art, creativity, organic
farming and an alternative way of life.
Whangarei, with its district population of 75,000, is New

of well-known towns and centres such as Mangawhai Heads,
Dargaville, the Bay of Islands (including Kerikeri, Paihia,
Waitangi and Russell) and Kaitaia.
