Tēnā koutou katoa

This is all about New Zealand - Aotearoa - and the time I spent there. Magical times, beautiful scenery, gushing geysers, thermal wonderlands. Hear about Waitangi Day, discover the meaning of the word "Aotearoa", see the Glaciers, read about hangis and Hakas, and visit the beautiful Bay of Islands. So come with me on a journey - a journey to The Land of The Long White Cloud.
Kia ora

9. Bay of Islands - Paihia Esplanade Walk

Wednesday 3 January

Paihia is known as the Jewel of the Bay of Islands. The tree is the Pohutukawa Tree, also called the New Zealand Christmas Tree, and is one of the most outstanding plants of the entire New Zealand flora. With beautiful bright crimson flowers it is tough and hardy and can be seen in profusion along the coastal areas.

Paihia Visitor Information Centre


This beautiful old building houses the Visitor Information Centre and other retail shops and is located at the Wharf in Marsden Road. The helpful staff will help organise and book activities, transport and cruises. Set amid beautiful clear waters it's a real delight just to stroll down and around this lovely area.


Ducks Crossing


One of the signs I spotted on my walk - alas I became "delete" happy and lost a few photos. (Sigh)

Paihia Hibiscus


Nodding in the breeze was this hibiscus along the waterfront.
