Northland Places to Visit New Zealand

Most popular Northland places to visit in New Zealand are usually not far off the main tourist roads but there are hidden gems all over the Northland with a few detours here and there.

This list is not exhaustive of all the places to go on your Northland holiday and a good tourist road atlas is a must.

More information and pictures will be given on sites and attractions I have been to and can review, some of which I have visited on more than one occasion.
