One of the special things about the Bay of Islands - and indeed the rest of New Zealand - is how welcoming the residents are to those who are "just visting". We are proud of our country and we want you to have a memorable stay here. And that includes making sure you have easy access to the day-to-day services that we all use, residents and visitors alike.
