Bay of Islands Heritage Experience

The Bay of Islands is an island paradise comprising of 144 Islands and a handful of historic towns. The stunning scenery, golden beaches and fresh seafood make it one of the most prominent tourist destinations in New Zealand. The Bay of Islands has a long, fascinating and often wild history and is also home to several historical attractions such as the Mission House and the Waitangi Treaty grounds, the birthplace of the nation. Located just over three hours from Auckland by road, in the ‘winterless north’, the year-round warm weather makes it a popular destination.
