DAY 3-4

Christ Church, Russell Christ Church, Russell

Unpack, unwind in the unforgettable Bay of Islands. Unearth history exploring the Bay of Islands. The area, between Cape Brett and Purerua Peninsula witnessed the beginnings of modern Aotearoa, New Zealand. Holiday towns include Opua, Paihia, Russell, Kerikeri and Mangonui at the northern tip. The legal and cultural heart of the country is centred around Waitangi and its swath of grass dipping into the Bay of Islands inlets. Waitangi has a world class visitor experience introducing everyone to the narrative that is uniquely New Zealand. Paihia is an ideal location for visitors wishing to experience a Waitangi immersive experience where the Treaty of Waitangi and the relationship between the Crown (government) and traditional owners is explained.

Meet passionate locals whose work protects the marine environment. Walk on a predator free sanctuary and hear note for note, bird song.
