Northland - Accessible/Easy Access Accommodation & Activities

A simple description of Northland would be that it is farmland in the middle with beaches all around the sides - from Whangarei and the town basin to the Tutukaka game fishing base, white sandy beaches all the way up to the Bay of Islands, with more north to Mangonui and North Cape. The west is the more rugged and rough face of the North Island - calmer inside the two major harbours - Kaipara and the Hokianga. Hokianga distinctive for its golden sand hills inside the harbour entrance.

There is access to all these places - most beaches have flat grassy parks and vantage points - and enjoying the scenery is possible everywhere. In the Bay of Islands there are accessible options to cruise the bay and to fish. And if you like eating seafood... its everywhere in Northland. Away from the coast the Matakohe Kauri Museum, and drive through the Waipoua Forest with a stop at the accessible boardwalk to view the giant kauri Tane Mahuta are further accessible options.
