Location

Rawene, Northland, New Zealand

While small, the town is one of the oldest in New Zealand and enjoys one of the best, if not the best, climates in the country. Rawene is located about 4 hours North of Auckland, or just 60 minutes drive from the Bay of Islands Airport. It is the perfect jumping off point for day trips throughout Northland - including Cape Reinga, 90 Mile Beach and Doubtless Bay to the North; Kerikeri, Waitangi and Russell to the East; Opononi, Omapere and the Waipoua Forest to the West. In Rawene itself there is a licensed café (The Boatshed), 2 craft shops, an art gallery with a cafe, a second-hand store, an organic grocery, historic Clendon House, a pub, a pharmacy, and small market - all easily accessible by foot.
