Northland is rich in a unique history that ties both Maori and non Maori people together.
The people who first came to these shores were both bold and adventurous. Over 1000 years ago the legendary explorer Kupe aboard the ocean going waka (canoe) Nga Toki Matawhaorua arrived in the Hokianga Harbour and the first people of the land arrived on our shores. By the late 1700’s the Europeans arrived. Today many of the people that live here are descended from those early arrivals. As Northlanders we live, work and thrive in an environment which is the envy of the inhabitants of big cities and a more bustling lifestyle.
Beautiful subtropical Northland, where the sun shines brightly, the grass grows greener and the water is warmer.
