Enjoy a leisurely morning before you travel back to Auckland.

The grounds are where Maori chiefs first signed their accord with the British Crown – the Treaty of Waitangi, New Zealand’s founding document.

Later, you’ll journey south to Whangarei, the northernmost city in New Zealand, where there’s time to admire the local art and stroll along the marina in the Town Basin.
