- Northland is known as 'Te Tai-tokerau' in Maori. It means 'the tail of the fish' and relates to the Maori legend that says Maui fished up the North Island of New Zealand from the depths of the ocean.
- The Auckland region is a great place for sports fans! Cricket, Rugby, League, Basketball, Netball, Tennis, Soccer, Swimming, Sailing. All are popular sports with international events on year round.
- Lord of the Rings fans should make a trip to Matamata - home of the hobbits. Take a tour and see inside Bilbo's house.
- If you'd like a game of golf, perhaps Kinloch is the way to go? Bob Charles thinks so "Having just played Kinloch for the first time I can honestly say this is the # 1 golf course in New Zealand. For those unable to play the great links courses of Scotland, Kinloch compares with the best of them."
