Northland is known as “the birthplace of New Zealand”. It offers fascinating Māori cultural experiences and is home to the world's largest Kauri Tree.

From historic sites such as the Waitangi Historic Reserve – where the treaty that made New Zealand a British colony was signed – to the mythical Hokianga Harbour and Kauri Coast; Northland is rich in Māori culture and historical places. Enjoy a spiritual experience on the west coast when you visit Tane Mahuta, the world's largest Kauri Tree, or experience the warmth of Māori hospitality with a local Marae visit and hāngi (earth oven).
