Where to stay in Whangarei

About Whangarei

The northernmost city in New Zealand, Whangarei is blessed with 40 kilometers of golden beaches, world-class scuba diving and the famous Whangarei Waterfalls. Set between the volcanic Mount Parihaka and the pristine Bay of Islands, Whangarei’s beautiful scenery is complemented by rich Maori culture.

Things to do

Take a relaxing cruise to Poor Knights Island off the Tutukaka Coast. Pass through the world’s largest sea cave and see colonies of rare seabirds before stopping off to kayak and scuba dive along the coast. The vibrant coral reef is home to over 100 species of fish, manta rays and dolphins.

Discover New Zealand’s beautiful Maori culture with true descendants of the land on a Tutika Tour. Experience a traditional “Powhiri” welcome ceremony with a morning tea of Maori breads followed by songs, weaving and story time.

For family fun, tackle the high-ropes course at Adventure Forest, where everyone can navigate through the treetops on dangling wires, bridges and a flying fox. If you’d rather keep your two feet on the ground, trek to Whangarei Falls and marvel at the 26-meter-high curtain of water flowing over the Hatea River.

Spectacular Northland scenery awaits along the Bream Head Coastal Walk. The entire trail takes three days to complete, but the four-kilometer hike to the summit of Mount Manaia also rewards day trekkers with beautiful views over the Whangarei Harbour, Bream Head and Chicken Island.

Getting around

You can fly into Whangarei Airport, just seven kilometers south-east of the city center, or take the Intercity bus from Auckland International Airport. Once in Whangarei, buses, taxis and rental cars are available, although most destinations are within walking distance.
