Day 1 Arrive in Auckland All travellers using Amazing New Zealand services are personally met at the airport by our friendly professional representative. You will receive at the airport a comprehensive Deluxe Travel Pack.

The pack contains the prepaid service vouchers, maps, discount vouchers and brochures to local attractions, plus a detailed daily explanation of driving routes, including suggested stops en route. We recommend at least one day here to recover from your jet-lag. After all, Auckland is known as the City of Sails. Wander up to the Sky Tower - Admire the view, do the Skywalk, bungee jump from the tower or just have dinner in the revolving restaurant.

Kelly Tarlton was the inventor of the undersea walkway where you can view the fish from below without getting wet - the Antarctic Encounter and Penguin Encounter are worth stopping here on their own. Enjoy a beer in Vulcan Lane or stroll through Cornwall Park. All pests have been eradicated from the island which has been allowed to revert back to native bush.

The bird life is incredibly abundant here and all within flying distance of the mainland. Rare species include the Takehe previously thought extinct the Kakapo near extinct and the Saddleback, etc. The ferry departs from the Ferry Building at 9am and returns at 4. It is more like a cruise on the harbour, often accompanied by dolphins.

Please note that there is no food available for purchase on the island, so you must bring your own supplies. Informative guided walks are also available by the volunteers. All proceeds help in the continual restoration and improvements on the island. Please also remember to bring suitable clothing for the weather conditions on the day, togs and towel, sun-block and hat, raincoat, camera and binoculars!

Alternatively you catch the ferry to Waiheke Island and hire a scooter. In between you can walk off those calories through the bush and beaches of the Whakanewha Reserve. Or, enjoy fantastic coastal and vineyards views on horseback as you ride from Kataitia Bay through Church Road Estate.

The Coastal Track on Waiheke Island has the added bonus of vineyard cafes and beaches en route! From the wharf, walk along the beach and follow the green and yellow markers around the coast.

The path takes you along the cliff-top past exclusive homes, vineyards and olive groves. This will bring you eventually to the white sand beach, shops and cafes at Oneroa. You can extend the walk by continuing along the coast past Church Bay, but the views and path and not as good. Head north on SH1 over the Harbour Bridge. You will rejoin SH1 just south of Puhoi. Soon after it changes to 50kmph again, you will see a sign to the right for Tutukaka and the Whangarei Falls follow the signs to Tutukaka.

The 23m falls are more than worth a look and they are right next to the road. There is a lovely bush walk to the base of the falls. From here allow another 1. To return to SH1 return the way you came and turn right at the first roundabout. He chose Kawakawa to retire and die in and his unique toilets have become world famous.

Return to the turnoff for Paihia and the Bay of Islands and continue north another 15 minutes to the town centre. Pack just an overnight bag and any valuables as there is not much room for luggage in the cabins! Leave your large luggage pieces locked out of sight in the boot of the car. The Bay of Islands is made of islands in total and the bay is home to several pods of dolphins and the waters beyond are famous for the big game fishing of marlin, tuna and swordfish. There is also the opportunity to fish.

A portion of your fare contributes to marine mammal research and conservation in the Bay of Islands. Day 4 Paihia After your Bay of Islands experience on the water, you have another day to check out the many land based activities. Suggested activities in the Bay of Islands include: The historical Waitangi Visitor Centre and Treaty House marks the site of the original treaty signing in between the Maori people and the British Empire.

Take the ferry across to Russell, a quaint little village which was once the capital of New Zealand! It was also once known as the "hell hole of the South Pacific" between and , when whore-houses abounded and drunken brawls between whalers and seamen were the norm.

Today it is a much quieter place! Russell is recommended for dinner. Our starting point is Paihia wharf, drive north direction Puketona. The first village is Haruru Falls which are themselves not very spectacular but this was one of the first meeting points for trading between the Maori and white people. Roadside stalls selling fresh fruit and vegetables abound, many operating an "honesty box" - just leave your payment in the box.

It is on the water and is called the Stone Store. There is a loop road that will bring you back to the highway at Waipapa. Travel north along SH10 for another 13 kilometres and turn right to Matauri Bay. The approach to Matauri Bay has one of the best views in New Zealand - get ready for the "wow" reaction as you begin the descent to the beach. There is a place to park and admire the view immediately on the left. You are looking at the Cavalli Islands.

Matauri Bay is famous for deep sea fishing and diving. You must take the little walk up to the Rainbow Warrior Memorial on top of the hill — the views from the top are awesome. The track is rather steep on loose gravel in the beginning, so be careful. The Rainbow Warrior was a Greenpeace vessel specializing in disrupting French nuclear tests on the Pacific atolls. The French Secret Service bombed her in while she was tied up at the wharf in Auckland.

This ridiculous act of terrorism resulted in the death of one of her crew, plus several others injured — something the New Zealanders have never forgiven France for. Return up the hill and turn right and follow the coast road— the best place of all to photograph Matauri Bay is 1. At the Give Way sign, go right into Whangaroa Harbour. Drive through Whangaroa, past the marina and hotel, you will see a road on the right marked "public access to summit". Keep following the road right up to the top.

The path is unformed and rather steep and slippery at times — just follow the yellow markers. Day 6 Whangaroa — Omapere kms Drive back through Whangaroa to the cross road where you turned right — continue straight towards Kaeo and Mangonui.

At the SH10 intersection, go right direction Kaitaia. It comes wrapped in paper, so to really eat them New Zealand style, take your packet away with you and eat them on the beautiful Coopers Beach — another 3 kilometres further along the road.

The pohutakawa tree-lined beach is just perfect to stroll along. Taipa Beach has the perfect crescent of sand and surf. On the corner look for the award winning Big River Cafe on the banks of a little stream, with friendly ducks under the willows. I recommend a visit to the Ancient Kauri Kingdom. The exquisite crafts and furniture created here are carved from 30, to 50, year old kauris that were in the first instance swamped by rising melt waters after the last ice-age, and in the second toppled en-masse by a giant tsunami, thus preserving the beautiful wood perfectly.

Kaitaia is the gateway to Cape Reinga, where the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean meet and where Maori believe the spirits of their ancestors depart New Zealand for the return journey north to Hawaiki. The northern most point of New Zealand is actually North Cape a little to the east.

The thin strip of land north of Kaitaia was settled by Kauri Gum diggers in the late s, most of the settlers were Dalmatians.

But to go right to the top you need to stay an extra day here and take one of the many safaris that depart in the morning.

Choose one that includes at stop at the Gum Diggers Park. If you do stay an extra day, you could then stay on the Karikari Peninsula. It has beautiful bays, great beaches and lots of well sign-posted walks. A picnic at secluded Matai Bay is peace epitomized.

You may like to drive out to Ahipara, 14 kilometres to the west. This beach marks the beginning of the Ninety Mile Beach actually kms of uninterrupted sand , which stretches north in a wide sweep from here.

Quad-biking along the beach is the specialty here, just ask at the Adventure Centre by the shops. Return to Kaitaia and continue south. At 94 kilometres there is the steep and winding Maungataniwha Range to cross, the rain forest here is particularly lush.

Unbelievable as it may seem, but this tiny village used to be the centre of New Zealand. The land was governed from Mission House for the first two years, before they built Government House in Russell.

It was also here that the majority of the Maori chiefs signed the Treaty of Waitangi — contrary to what you learnt at the Waitangi Visitor Centre! Continue through Horeke past the oldest pub in New Zealand. It was built in to service the boat builders, go left after the one way bridge. There is a lovely 1 hour walk through a strange labyrinth of 3 million year old basalt boulders scattered through this beautiful valley.

Some have unique fluting caused by acid dripping from the kauris over thousands of years. This phenomenon has previously only ever been discovered on limestone rocks. Return to the road and go left. Opononi is next, made famous in the fifties by the resident dolphin they named Opo. The Hokianga Harbour is where Maori legend proclaims that the great navigator and explorer Kupe lived until he was an old man before returning to his home land.

The next village is Omapere, where there are excellent views across the harbour to the giant sand dunes on the other side.


The New Zealand Police (Maori: Nga Pirihimana o Aotearoa) is the national police force of New Zealand, responsible for enforcing criminal law, enhancing public safety, maintaining order and keeping the peace throughout New hchy.tk over 11, staff it is the largest law enforcement agency in New Zealand and, with few exceptions, has primary jurisdiction over the majority of New Zealand. New Zealand is an extraordinarily unique country offering a continent's worth of scenery crammed into its two main islands - having every geographical feature you .
