The Bay of Islands region

The North of the North Island is the warmest part of New Zealand and for 5 months November-April we have an influx of "SWALLOWS'' who come South each year to escape cold winters.

We also have fourteen former British Airways pilots who have travelled the world and upon retirement have chosen to live in KERIKERI in the BAY OF ISLANDS. Other local residents include many who have sailed their yachts round the world before deciding to settle in The Bay of Islands.

Bay of Islands

There are five National Trust houses to visit within one hours drive. These include Mission Houses and the Waitangi Treaty House which is a museum depicting the signing of a treaty with the Maories in1840.

Fullers is the leading tourist boat operator based in Paihia 15 minutes drive. Yacht charters and deep sea fishing expeditions and diving on sunken warships are all available. The east coast has good swimming beaches and exploring the bays by Kayak can start from the Jetty at THE CARRIAGE HOUSE.
