Caves to Coastal Adventures

New Zealand’s northernmost thus warmest city, Whangarei, is a great place to base yourself for coastal exploration and watersports. Not only does the Northland city have all the essential conveniences in its centre, but it also has super close proximity to forest walks, mountain climbs and cave crawls. Being a harbour city, Whangarei is one of the best places to start a trip out to the world-class diving spot, Poor Knights Island. You’re also never too far from sandy beaches with surf, fishing and kayaking at Bream Bay and the Tutukaka Coast.

Inland, Whangarei thrives from farming and horticulture, so if you are looking for seasonal picking work, Whangarei is a good place to find it!

So whether you’re just passing through on some of the scenic coastal highways, or stopping for a while in Whangarei to take advantage of all those little epic day trips in the area, just take a look at our guide below for things to do in Whangarei and its surrounds!
