Subtropical Northland, where the sun shines brightly, and the water is warmer. We don’t do sub-zero temperatures or snow!
New Zealanders and international visitors alike flock to this magical unspoiled paradise. Don't forget your 'togs, bathers, swimmers, boardies or cossies'.
Glorious days out in the bay are still to be enjoyed, although evening approaches a little earlier and can get a little cooler. Great season for walking and hiking as it's not so hot.
You almost feel as if you have the region to yourself as the summer holidays makers depart, and it’s much warmer than the rest of the country. Leave the thermals at home!
Okay, yes it rains sometimes, but you get that in a subtropical climate, and that’s what keeps our countryside so fresh and green.
