Here's a selection of pictures of New Zealand's North Island

Pictures of New Zealand's North Island

No selection of pictures of New Zealand would be complete without some pictures of New Zealand's North Island.

What an amazing place. Sub-tropical Northland, the surfing beaches of the Bay of Plenty. Cosmopolitan Auckland and Wellington, the wonderful inlets and bays of the Coromandels and the Bay of Islands. The art deco charm of Napier, and the towering peak of Mt Taranaki.

New Zealand's North Island has something to offer everyone.

Perhaps not as rugged as the South Island, the North Island has its own charm, and offers many wonderful photo opportunities.

We hope that you enjoy this small selection of photos.
