Our Region

Being the northernmost of New Zealand’s 16 local government regions, we are the closest region to the equator so Northland offers its residents and visitors the warmest climate in the country. From anywhere in our beautiful region the coast is only a 40 minute drive and in some parts you can drive between the West and East coast in that time.

We really have the best of both worlds being in Whangarei where we are in a great position to be the centre of all the arts in the region and where we have the privilege of supporting the Creative Sector in the winterless North.
