New Zealand's warmest and northernmost city knows how to show you an easy-going good time. The centre of a district famous for its 100 or so superb beaches and romantic countryside. Whangarei with a population of 41500 or so, enjoys more than 2,000 hours of sunshine a year, and there's rainfall enough to keep the surroundings lush, green and attractively semi-tropical.
Whangarei has grown to become the cultural, entertainment, commercial and service centre for Northland. It has come a long way since Ahipupu times!
