Northland

Living in Northland

Known as 鈥榯he winterless North鈥 for its climate, Northland鈥檚 white sandy beaches, great fishing and scenic locations like the Bay of Island make it a popular place to live.

Northland is a popular tourist destination, offering many ancient forests, historical sites and beautiful sandy beaches. It's also home to giant sand dunes and Kauri trees, exciting wildlife, and huge areas of green,聽productive farmland and fruit orchards.

On the West coast, one beach alone is 110 kilometres long, all set between the big city of Auckland and the magic of Cape Reinga.
