Here is Cape Reinga, 420 kms North of Auckland on New Zealands North Island. This is the northernmost point on NZ's mainland, offering spectacular views along with an almost spiritual experience of seeing two great bodies of water collide - the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea.
Auckland is the commercial capital of New Zealand but anything to the North can be considered "Northland". Preferred destination for tourists and workers alike when surf, sand, diving and fishing is involved. It has a solid rural base of Dary, Beef and Sheep as well as horticulture and wineyards. Whangarei is the regional city on the way up to Cape Reinga at the northernmost tip of the island.
