Northland Trip (29 Nov- 1 Dec 08)

Huh! No visit to New Zealand is complete without a trip to subtropical Northland. Northland is a contrast between the turquoise waters and golden sands of the east coast, and the wild surf and dramatic scenery of the west coast beaches. It offers hospitable local culture, historic landmarks, secluded coves, tranquil harbours and spectacular forests. A highlight is Cape Reinga, the northern most point in the country, where we can experience the surging spectacle of the Tasman Sea meeting the Pacific Ocean.

We have spent 3 days 2 night for our trip around the Northland and we had a great time, saw lots of sights, driven a long way (probably about 1000kms – some on gravel roads) . When making a trip around Northland, we are better off driving our own vehicle coz there’s a lot of gorgeos place to visit and can spend more times by our own itenaries….hehehe.  Here are a few photos of our journey:
