Traveller's Tips

New Zealand

Go back in time to experience the colonial birthplace of New Zealand in the small, yet very busy town in the summer; Russell, where this countries founding document the Treaty of Waitangi was signed. This little town was for a short time the capital city of NZ. Easily accessed by both road and ferry from Paihia.

Show all possible tips this widget can display

One of the following tips will be selected at random each time the Tips Widget is displayed. New tips are being added all the time so this list will change. Tips are moderated by the Rankers crew.

If you like diving, the Poor Knights Islands are amazing (Top 10 in cool water in the world).
Make sure you bring a torch and good shoes when you explore the Abbey Caves just out of Whangarei. The trip takes a few hours and you will see lots, and lots of glow worms, stalactites and stalagmites.
The Kai Iwi lakes are well worth a visit, three clear turquoise coloured lakes surrounded by white beaches and pine forest. In this area you can go swimming, fishing, walking and mountain biking. There is also access to the Tasman Sea.
Whangarei Falls, just 5km out of town are an easy walk through some nice bush. Very photogenic and sometimes used by trained professionals for abseiling activities.
Go to the Hokianga Harbour and walk up the massive sand dunes - impressive. Catch the ferry there from Opononi, or its a 15minute drive from Mitimiti.
In Kawakawa are NZ’s most famous toilets designed by Friedrich Hundertwasser.
Go back in time to experience the colonial birthplace of New Zealand in the small, yet very busy town in the summer; Russell, where this countries founding document the Treaty of Waitangi was signed. This little town was for a short time the capital city of NZ. Easily accessed by both road and ferry from Paihia.
If you get the chance, go boating in the Bay of Islands – the most relaxing place to be on the ocean. Surrounded by 144 sheltered islands where there are many private beaches to spend the day, or days at. Amazing.
Te Arai Point is a good place to go fishing and surfing, you can camp in the carpark on the sandy/grassy part just behind the dunes. There are a couple of toilets but no water
The Tutukaka Coast has most beautiful beaches and a good place to see the beautiful Poor Knights Islands (marine reserve). The first little settlement you get to is Ngunguru, drive on past Matapouri to Whale Bay. Whale Bay is accessed by foot only, but via a very good track.
If you are driving up north from Auckland, use highway 16, which goes out northwest to Wellsford. The roads are far more wow and scenic with less traffic, lots of beaches to see along the way.
The little town of Opononi is a real New Zealand icon, it may not look impressive to the traveller but in the 50’s this town had a resident dolphin called Opo living there that swam with people. There is a sculpture as a reminder (drive slow or you will miss it). Check out the video shown at the local museum to get the vibe why NZ loved Opo so much.
The drive out to Whangarei Heads road follows little sheltered bays along the coast, at the end of the road is Ocean Beach, a massive beach with white sand, excellent surfing, rock pools and amazing views.
If you want to go well off the beaten track make your way up to Mimiwhagata Coastal Park, managed by DOC, camping available, basic water and toilets. You have to walk a few hundred metres to get there.
If you are game to drive along 90mile beach you need to be a bit careful, only do it 2 hours after high tide and drive as close to the water as possible so you don’t get stuck in the soft sand. Lots of cars do get stuck, flooded and destroyed. Emergency services are far, far away, it is for this reason that if you are driving a rental car you will not be insured. If you are not keen to drive yourself, catch a tour bus.
At the southern tip of 90 mile beach is Ahipara, a surfer’s paradise, also very close to Ship Wreck Bay where you can see wrecks at low tide. This area is loaded with lots of history about gum diggers.
The drive to around KariKari Peninsular is fantastic. Lots of secluded beaches. We didn't stay there but Maitai Bay looks a great place to spend the night.

At the top of Rotorua there is a river called the Hamurana. You can jump from the bridge into the clear water.

Amazing clear water, coming up from a deep hole with strong pressure. From the depths of the earth, it comes up providing clean water for life.

Awesome walk through huge Redwoods and beautiful forests to find fresh water springs. We like watching the trout swim against the current through the crystal clear water.

We were greeted by a hoard of avian friends! Ducks, roosters, finches ... I love birds so we played with them for a while before actually walking the track. The spring is absolutely stunning. The water was so clear and the redwoods were towering above us as we started our track. Would definitely recommend this short track.

    Beautiful area! The trail was varied and fun. I would have appreciated an easier way to access the track without a personal car. Also, the track was incredibly muddy.

    We hiked from the Tapotupotu DOC campsite to Cape Reinga in two hours admiring breathtaking views of the coast. The track is well indicated and comfortable. It is exciting when you first catch a glimpse of Cape Reinga's lighthouse!

    The cape reinga could do with some barriers along some of the cliff area and some of the walk ways to improve accessibility. There could be a small café and shop with views over the two oceans. The money generated from the visitors centre could help doc improve the conservation estate. This has been done by the Auckland Council at Murawai with the gannets.

    This track is around five hours. During the walk, we cross the beach, bush and a kind of desert landscape. This track was really full of diversity. I recommend it.
