Stretching about 200 miles from the northern tip of the north island, this region enjoys long stretches of unspoiled coastline, forests and Cape Reinga, where the Pacific Ocean and Tasman Sea meet. It is one of the heartlands of the Maori culture, and the landmark Treaty of Waitangi was signed here; you can visit these beautiful grounds. There are also great opportunities for golf, sailing and sampling some impressive local produce.
