    This self-drive itinerary incorporates the top of the North Island of New Zealand. The arrival point of this itinerary is Auckland where you can pick up your rental vehicle. From here, travel north to the Warkworth/Matakana region. Warkworth is just an hour’s drive from Auckland and a world away in terms of character and pace. It is also the gateway to the Matakana Coast Wine Country, one of the most desirable places to visit in New Zealand. Vineyards, local markets, iconic beaches and islands, marine reserves and wildlife sanctuaries are all within a short distance of Warkworth village.

    Next, head north to 'winterless' Northland and on to the Bay of Islands. This sub tropical region is most popular for it's big game fishing, sailing, scenic cruises, sightseeing and wildlife tours. Waitangi is the birthplace of the nation and is signifigant to Maori and European history. Heading further north will take you to the Far North region, and to the northernmost tip of New Zealand, Cape Reinga. Not far from here you can visit 90 Mile Beach and the Te Paki sand dunes.

    Returning south, your next stop is the city of Whangarei, with the idyllic holiday destination of Whangarei Heads not far away.

    Finally return to Auckland to complete this itinerary.  Auckland International Airport caters for both domestic and international travellers.
