Relax in waterfront hotels at Copthorne Omapere on the Hokianga, Ramada Resort, Taipa and Copthorne Waitangi. Take a leisurely drive to Cape Reinga where the Tasman and Pacific Ocean meet. Cruise out to Cape Brett in the Bay of Islands watching for dolphins.
There's our favourite tree, Tane Mahuta in Waipoua Forest, historic trails and some great birds. Gannets at Muriwai, seagulls hovering around your lunch at Mangonui and a wide awake kiwi resident at the Bird Recovery Centre. On the water dolphins leap around the boat on your way to the Hole in the Rock.
