Northland

Things to do in Northland

The Northland region is the northernmost region in New Zealand on the North Island.
Often known as the winterless north because of its mild climate due to its proximity to the equator in comparison to the rest of the country.

The region has a population of around 195,000 people, with Whangarei being its main city with about 55,000 people calling it home.  
The area is mainly rolling hills, farm land and forestry.  Although it has the benefit of having the Tasman Sea on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other.  The western coast is dominated by several long straight beaches including the famous Ninety Mile beach, which is actually only 88km.  

You have to visit the Bay of Islands when you’re travelling round Northland as it is well and truly breathtaking.  As well as places such as Poor Knights island for a spot of snorkelling or scuba diving among the fish.  

Northland has a subtropical climate, with warm but humid summers and mild and wet winters.  Northland has the countries highest average annual temperature and in the summer can ranger from 22 – 26 degrees centigrade.
