Introducing The Far North
If it sounds remote, that’s because it is. Here’s your chance to get off the beaten track, although that often means onto unsealed roads. The far-flung Far North is always playing second fiddle to the Bay of Islands for attention and funding, yet the subtropical tip of the North Island has more breathtaking coastline per square kilometre than anywhere but the offshore islands. Parts of the Far North are noticeably economically depressed and in places could best be described as gritty. While the ‘winterless north’ may be a popular misnomer, summers here are long and leisurely.
