The city of Whangarei is a great place to introduce yourself to the laid-back Northland lifestyle. Watch the boats as you relax in a café by the pier.
The seaside town: Whangarei subtropical. Head to the top of Mount Parahaki, the highest point in the city. Formerly, it housed the largest Maori pa (fortified village) in New Zealand. You can still appreciate the excavations and an interpretation of the area is provided, which can be accessed through a pleasant walk through a native forest from the top.
