The Bay Of Islands
.

.
Tucked away in the north lies the sub tropical tip of
the country, Sweeping beaches, the famed
Bay of Islands, with it's wonderfully mild climate
  epitomizes Northland.  Here you can hook a
marlin, ride the roaring waves,  explore the deserted
 coves and islands and discover the founding history of
New  Zealand as a nation. This area has a world
wide reputation for it's big game fishing. As well
as it's beauty and entertainment, people come here
for the relaxation it offers. The tranquility  of the area is
guaranteed to lower even the highest of stress levels.

The Beautiful Bay of Islands
You'll find my opinion of this place to be a bit on the
biased side...this is truly where my heart is....for me,
 there's just no other place like it in this world!!
(Not that I've been to too many other places....
in fact, I've never been out of NZ!)

A shot of a couple of the out lying islands where boaties
anchor and go ashore or harbour out and take
in what the .seas have to offer.
.

.
The fabulous Hole In The Rock that the Bay is
so well known for throughout the world.
The fishing in this area is second to none!
I have spent many long hours just on the other side
of the hole fishing for schnapper and have never
failed to come home with an abundant supply!
If you're ever in the area, give it a go.....
it's nothing short of fantastic!

Believe it or not, but just fifty meters along the the road from
where this was taken is the busy shopping center.

Haruru Falls 
.
Just a short drive from the busy Paihia township is the blissfully
peaceful haven of the Haruru Falls. There are motels, a motor
camp, a delightful old Tavern which was transported there from
 Auckland and the "put your feet up and enjoy" type scenery that
is just out of this world.
