Twin Coast Discovery Highway

So much of New Zealand\’s scenic beauty in just one easy to reach region

“Northland is a place where twin coasts become one, where two seas meet and where countless expressions of nature’s versatility almost beg for discovery”   The Twin Coast Discovery Highway is a circular tourist route around Northland with the Kauri Coast in the west and the Bay of Islands and Whangarei in the east. These two coastlines, together with the spiritual Cape Reinga to the north, means the Northland region alone can provide visitors with so much of the total New Zealand experience.

All this and only an easy two hour drive from Auckland

Both coasts offer much of the unspoilt natural beauty for which New Zealand is famous, but in addition, each coastline has a diverse, but complementary aspect making Northland a visitor’s paradise.

Travel Clockwise for the best scenic vistas

It is strongly recommended that you travel Northland clockwise otherwise some of the most stunning vistas on the Kauri Coast Pathway to Northland will be missed – especially as you reach the breathtaking Hokianga Harbour scenic peak before descending into Omapere so remember to turn left at Brynderwyn

If you have limited time ……

Travelling the Twin Coast Discovery Highway around Northland is the perfect solution to enjoy so much of what makes a great New Zealand experience.
