Paihia is one of NZ"s premiere tourist destinations and provides visitors with a range of experiences for visitors. Many on, under and above the water, one of the most popular getting you up-close to the resident dolphins. Award-winning Waitangi Treaty Grounds, the birthplace of our nation, are within walking distance of Paihia and provide excellent insight into Maori history and culture and the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.

Don't leave out the Kerikeri Basin, another mission settlement with its famous Stone Store, 20 minutes by car Stunning Hokianga across on the west coast and Cape Reinga, of special spiritaul significance to Maori, at the very tip of the North Island are both great day trips worth making time for.
