The Bay of Island is a hot destination for all our international visitors and domestic travellers. Take a few days to explore all that the Bay has to offer.
A must is a visit to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds and the Museum. The tour and concert are a wonderful introduction to the significant place Waitangi holds in the history of New Zealand's development.
Visit the Waitangi Treaty site for all the info you need.
Other points of interest include historic Russell (catch the passenger ferry from Paihia or drive around using the Opua car ferry) the 'hell hole of the south pacific' is today more of a charming sleepy village. Hell Hole coffee is worth a visit.
The hole in the rock is an iconic visitor experience that will get you out on the water to experience all that is the Bay of Island. Go to Dolphin Cruises as one good place to have a look.
