North Island

New Zealand’s North Island is home to awesome beaches, cultural experiences, and plenty of family-friendly activities.

The capital of New Zealand, Wellington, sits on the southern end, while Auckland is further north. Both cities make up nearly half of New Zealand’s population and are full of creature comforts.

While we predominantly lived on the South Island, we love visiting the North Island any chance we can get. If you’re interested in learning more about what to expect from this part of New Zealand, be sure to check out all our blogs on the North Island below.
