And why should you come to Whangarei? We think Whangarei is so special because of many reasons:
There are not many cities in New Zealand where you can see native and protected bush from nearly every point in the town centre. Even the impressive Northland Kauri trees have survived in many places.
- A short distance from Whangarei are the scenic Tutukaka Coast and the Whangarei Heads with dozens of gorgeous bays and beaches, from sheltered sandy coves to calm harbour bays to wild surf beaches, all within 30 minutes drive from our B&B.
- The Whangarei landscape is very interesting, with extinct volcanoes, magnificent viewpoints, amazing sea views, sweeping rural countryside, bizarre limestone formations, peaceful bush reserves etc.
The 26m Whangarei Falls are the best of at least 5 other nice waterfalls in the vicinity. Of course lovely rivers come with them, where you can often find a swimming hole to cool off, spot some eels or river shrimps.
- Not far from Whangarei (Bay of Islands) Maori and Europeans first set foot on Aotearoa (New Zealand) and you can find old structures of both cultures which bear witness to those times.
- Whangarei is the warmest city in New Zealand, offering a glimpse of Polynesia, practically all tropical plants will grow here and the winters are mild with hardly any frosts, Northland is called ‘The winterless North’.
- The Poor Knights Islands benefit from warm northerly currents and are teeming with marine life in their protected reserve, offering the best diving in New Zealand and the best subtropical diving in the world - a top 10 dive spot according to Cousteau!
Whangarei region boasts more artists per head of population than any other in New Zealand. All in all, there are over 1,000 professional artists in Northland and many art galleries for you to discover. Wendy herself offers flax weaving courses.
Whangarei is well connected with New Zealand’s largest city - only a 35 minute flight and just 2 hours drive to Auckland.
