A fantastic base for Whangarei and Bay of Islands attractions, Brantome is only 2km off SH1 and about 10 minutes from Whangarei Town Basin Marina with its impressive array of cafes and galleries.
Visit the white sandy Ocean Beach where you may see dolphins at play, drive along Tutukaka Coast with its many bays, walk the never ending beach at Bream Bay or take a treetop board walk though 500 year old Kauri trees. There are an abundance of natural attractions and scenic walks around Whangarei and a 'must do' is a visit to the award winning Kauri Museum.
Golf lovers can enjoy five top golf courses, two of which are only 10 minutes drive from our Villa. And divers can experience the wonders of the Poor Knights marine reserve, rated one of the top ten dives in the world! Other local attractions include the Kiwi House at Heritage Park and Zion Wildlife Gardens for a close encounter with rare tigers. And for fine dining we recommend award winning restaurant, TopSail.
The Bay of Islands is only a 45 minute 'easy' drive - ideal for day trips. Lunch at Paihia, visit Russell, the first capital of NZ and the Waitangi Treay Grounds, 'Birthplace of the Nation'. See our list of Northland tours and activities which we can happily book for you.
