    You can enter the Church and it is worth the time. Lovely windows. Interesting graves in the grounds dating back to early 1880s

    Allan was an awesome tour guide - very knowledgeable and informative. We took a wine tour (with lunch) from Paihia - the wineries were well considered, we had plenty of time at each location to enjoy the offerings and Allan was with us throughout to assist as needed. The wineries we visited were quintessentially Northland and provided good context of wineries when compared to those in other regions of New Zealand. Add to this we were provided with the opportunity to meet the wine makers who were genuine and passionate Northlanders! Part way through the tour we visited some falls and Allan also pointed out some walks we could do later in our trip. Prior to dropping us back to our accommodation Allan took us to a renowned chocolate tasting.

    A great experience, a great tour and a great guide. Highly recommended.

    I went for a full body massage and I felt so relaxed from start to finish! The waiting area is calming, the staff are really accommodating and kind, and the massage was amazing with lovely oils/lotions that left me feeling relaxed for hours afterwards.

    When walking in the downtown area of Bay of Islands (Paihia), it is located right at the boat ferry pier, and carries a wide range of both clothing (Merino) and touristy souvenier items that one can't go home without. Their prices are in line with most retailers, but selection is wide.

    Great bar with really good, relaxed vibes. Terry was extremely helpful sorting us out with the upstairs table and bar for our mates Stag Do. Went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. Cheap booze and good music. Would highly recommend this place, and in particular the upstairs area for any private functions.

    Thanks again Terry.
