From Kerikeri Airport, you can drive to some great attractions such as the Waitangi Treaty House and Grounds. This is New Zealand's most significant historic site, where the country's founding document was signed in 1840. It's well worth joining a guided tour here, to fully understand the importance of Waitangi in the history of New Zealand.
While the towns of the Bay of Islands (Kerikeri, touristy Paihia, and historic Russell) are all charming, it's the islands of the bay which are the real stars. You can join the original tourism activity, hitching a ride on , 'The Cream Run', a boat tour to remote islanders, dropping off supplies and taking in the sights. This tour has been running since 1927. Or, spend the day on the R Tucker Thompson, a traditional gaff-rigged schooner. A modern option is to zip through the famous Hole in the Rock, and visit the Blue Lagoons on a jet ski, with Tango Jet Ski tours.
Also visit Urupukapuka Island is the largest island in the bay. It's a paradise for bird watchers, as it is predator free. Visit by boat or kayak, and spend the day relaxing.
