Bus and Coach

Let your indulgent escape start from Auckland - travel north on a bus and let an experienced driver take you through scenic countryside, rural towns and past sandy beaches to the beautiful Bay of Islands, arriving in Paihia relaxed and ready to enjoy your break.

InterCity operates multiple daily bus services to Paihia, Kerikeri and other destinations throughout Northland. Buses depart downtown Auckland from the InterCity SkyCity terminal at 102 Hobson Street and connect with services throughout New Zealand. Naked Bus are the other option and both companies have fares that start from just $1 (plus booking fee) and can be purchased online or from us the old fashioned way.
