Itinerary

Travel with us from Auckland to Paihia including a fully guided tour of the Waitangi Treaty Grounds.

Travel over Auckland’s Harbour Bridge via the North Shore and through the lush countryside to Warkworth.

A brief stop (time permitting) will be made at the Parry Kauri Park where you are able to view one of world’s mightiest trees, the Kauri, one of New Zealand’s native trees.

Continue through Warkworth, rich in heritage and a hub which services the wider region of Matakana, Leigh, Snells Beach and Kawau Island.
Pass through Wellsford, a busy country township which services the local farming and horticultural communities.

Morning tea and rest stop en route in Kaiwaka – a little town known for its lights, which illuminate the buildings at night.
Note: if you plan to purchase your own lunch, Cafe in Kaiwaka has a full selection of sandwiches, rolls etc.

After morning tea, continue on an up hill climb up the Brynderwyns, along the Waipu Straits and on to Whangarei – New Zealand’s most northern city

Whangarei’s full name is Whangarei Terenga Paraoa – translated as “swimming place of the whales” which can be further translated as “the meeting place of the chiefs”. It’s known as the commercial city of the North and is well known for its beaches at the Whangarei Heads and the Tutukaka Coast. A growing population, ¾ being of European descent and the other ¼ are mainly Tangata Whenua – Maori, with many other cultures starting to settle here.

Arrive in the Bay of Islands and proceed along the attractive shoreline to the historic Waitangi Treaty House and grounds.
Enjoy a fully guided tour of the Waitangi Treaty Grounds which overlook the Bay of Islands. It plays an important part in New Zealand’s history as this is where the signing of a treaty between the Maori and European people took place. Walk through the Te Whare Runanga Marae - Maori Meeting House - which represents all tribes of New Zealand. View Ngatokimatawhaorua – one of the world’s largest Maori War Canoes.

You will be met by your driver at the Waitangi Visitor Information Centre and continue to Paihia Wharf where your tour ends.
