Upon arrival into Auckland (own arrangements) you will be transferred from the Airport to the Hotel Grand Chancellor Auckland, located just a short walk from the Viaduct Harbour on Auckland Waterfront. This evening meet your tour escort and the rest of your group for included dinner at a local restaurant just a short walk from the hotel.

Following a continental breakfast this morning, depart Auckland and travel north stopping first in the quaint river side settlement of Warkworth. From Warkworth continue north and stop at the Kauri Museum at Matakohe.   The award-winning Kauri Museum tells the story of the kauri tree and the people who developed industries to harvest the rich resources of our ancient kauri forests. The unparalleled kauri timber and magnificent juvenile amber (kauri gum) built our nation. Experience the kauri story of the past, understand its present and be part of the kauri tree’s future. After leaving the museum the road north takes us through the Waipoua Forest. The Waipoua and the adjoining Mataraua and Waima, make up the largest remaining tract of native forest in Northland.  It is home to the famous lord of the forest –  Tane Mahuta, a kauri tree estimated to be between 1250 and 2500 years old. The final destination today is Omapare on the edge of the Hokianga Harbour.  Accommodation is provided at The Heads Hokianga which offers view across the harbour to towering coastal sand dunes. Following the included dinner tonight at the hotel you will join the Twilight Encounter with Footprints Waipoua.  You will be taken into the Waipoua forest and introduced to the oldest and largest known kauri trees in the world.  Experience the deep spiritual respect that Maori have for the giant kauri trees during your tour as your local Maori guide shares with you thought provoking information, humorous banter, stories and legends. 

After breakfast this morning travel back across to the east coast of Northland.  Visit Kerikeri and the famous Stone Store, one of New Zealand’s oldest buildings dating back to 1832.  Then venture to Waitangi and visit the Treaty grounds and museum – location of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840.
This afternoon check-in to the Kingsgate Hotel Autolodge Paihia located in the heart of the township and just a few minutes’ walk to the wharf area.  Dinner will be included at the hotel tonight.

Included today after breakfast is a full day tour to Cape Reinga, at the very top of New Zealand.  View the varying and beautiful landscape of Northland, rolling rural hills and breathtaking coastal scenery.  Drive along the shores of Ninety Mile beach on a custom-built coach and stop next to giant sand dunes while travelling up Te Paki stream. Time is given at Cape Reinga to visit the light house and take that iconic photo of the signposts pointing out international locations around the world. Throughout the day an enjoyable tour commentary offering local insight, extensive historical knowledge, and fantastic sense of humour to create an unforgettable day will be included.

After breakfast this morning cruise out into the Islands in search of dolphins and other marine life. You will journey right to the end of Cape Brett Peninsula, to the famous Hole in the Rock on Motukokako Island.
