  • Hard for me to expand on what to see as we had the worst weather northland had had in a century. So confined by wind and rain most of the time but we will return again as there is a lot to see.  more »
  • The harbour area is at the centre of everything. All trips can be booked from this area. The helicopter takes from here. There's a great souvenir shop. You catch the ferry to Russell Island from here....  more »
  • Went on hole in the rock tour. Saw dolphins on the way out, stopped at several places and did manage to go through the hole in the rock. Very pleasant tour.  more »
