Many overseas students choose
Northland because of its warm climate. It’s known in New Zealand as the ‘winterless
north’. The area has beautiful beaches, forests, lakes and rivers. Māori culture is rich
Whangarei, Northland’s largest centre, means ‘cherished harbour’ and
the small coastal town certainly lives up to its name.
Northland is a popular
holiday destination for Aucklanders who fish, dive and sail in the stunning Bay of
Islands. Take a cruise and you’ll almost always see dolphins.
Northland is where
European history in New Zealand began and there are fascinating historic Māori and
European settler sites to visit.
