Summer is a popular time to visit Whangarei when the weather is warmer and there’s less rainfall. August is the coldest month of the year, when overnight temperatures can get quite low.
Whangerei is located on the North Island, and therefore enjoys a relatively warmer climate. Travel from November to February to enjoy more daylight hours.
Whangarei is located two hours north of Auckland along State Highway 1. If you are travelling into Auckland be sure to check the traffic so you can avoid any unnecessary delays.
Familiarise yourself with the laws of New Zealand if you are new to the country. Keep to the left-hand side of the road, and take extra care in hazardous weather conditions. Be sure to abide by local speed limits.
Our data shows that Whangarei, along with other isolated cities in Australia, book out of rental cars during peak seasons (i.e., school holidays and major city events) because of the limited amount of rental cars available by providers in the area. We recommend always booking well in advance for this location.
