Come for 1 night, 2 nights, a week or longer and find something different to do every day. Many of our guests remark how varied and interesting our attractions are, and how more plentiful they are, then more widely known areas in Northland.
Leave or arrive in Auckland airport, and you will find we are the ideal place to spend your first or last few days. Historic Mansion House, the former residence, on Kawau Island, of New Zealand's first Governor General - Governor Grey, has been beautifully restored and is the focus of a great day doing the Mail Run aboard the very comfortable Kawau Kat catamaran, with plenty of time for swims, or walks to the abandoned copper mine or over the island.
