New Zealand's North Island | Perth
There is a good point why travelers keep pouring into New Zealand to distract us from the powerful backpackinglist. The North Island of New Zealand is like a large children playing field, full of bathing areas, food, climbing and adventure outdoors. There are 10 marvellous things to do on the North Island here.
Many things make New Zealand famous, and we are particularly proud of one thing: its stunning coastline. Auckland' s western coastline offers Piha, Bethells and Muriwai beach, ideal for walking, bathing, picnicking and just relaxing in the sun. Update your Aotearoa story and head north to discover the valley-rich cities of Paihia, Waitangi and Russell.
There are also excitement seeker activites such as dolphin swim and snorkel with tropic fishing on Piercy Island. Enter directly into the Caribbean Sea on one of the most famous North Island sandy shores - the Cathedral Bay of Coromandel. The way to the shore is an one and a half hours tour, but it's rewarding to be welcomed by the vaulted bay and huge Pacific Ocean water.
In Waikato, just two hours by car from Auckland, you can take a picture outside The Shire's front doors, find out all the best kept mysteries about the setting and end the fun with a look over the Kaimai Ranges at sundown. Probably the most beloved North Island hotspot in terms of summers, Mount Maunganui in Tauranga is only three hours by car from Auckland and the ideal place when the weather is sunny.
For a sweaty break, go to Putaruru and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Blue Spring clear blue sea. Unfortunately, while you cannot float in the wells ( they are currently sheltered), the Te Waihou footpath and look at the fascinating sea is definitely one that crosses the old North Island pail roster.
A further must on the North Island is a visit to the old beehive (yes, that's the name of the House of Parliament) down in Wellywood. New Zealand capitol Wellington is located at the bottom of the North Island and is home to some legendary places like the Te Papa House of Representatives, the Te Papa Fountain, the Eimer Fountain and Mount Victoria.
Whangamata is the place to be if you've always wanted to realize your dreams of capturing gnarled ripples in the big blues! Whangamata Surf School brings you to the water of one of the most untouched North Island sandy shores and lets you hang ten times in the twinkling of an eye.
If you know the skill of surfboarding, there are many good restaurants and in Whanga' you have to see and do. There is no way to travel to New Zealand's North Island without making a stop in Waitomo to see the true magics of the glow-worm world.
From Auckland CBD, take a quick boat trip to get away from the hubbub of urban activity and reach Waiheke Island, the relaxation capitol. Waiheke has a great deal to boast as a winelands, vacation resort and seaside paradise all in one. Stop at Mudbrick Vineyard and Restaurant or Cable Bay for a winetasting and a la carte dinner before kayaking into Cactus Bay to enjoy a dip in the sun at sundown.
