Whangarei (Maori:Whangārei)(Pronounced:Faa - ngaa - re - i) is the major population centre (Pop ~50,000) of Northland and the northernmost "city" in the North Island of New Zealand. It has a warm semi-tropical climate, with summer daytime temperatures around 24-26 degrees Celsius, regular rainy days year round and mild winters that rarely have frosts and are mild enough for the region to be described as the winterless north.
Whangarei is around two hours drive north from Auckland. Flying time from Auckland is 30 to 40 minutes.
Whangarei's only form of public transport is the bus service (http://www.nrc.govt.nz/transport/bus_trial.shtml) being run as a trial by the Whangarei District and Regional councils. It covers most of the suburbs and the inner city. Tickets are $2.00 for adults and can be purchased from the driver.

Whangarei is only 70 kilometres from the Bay of Islands and is the primary gateway to the rest of Northland. Alternatively you can take the road to Dargaville and travel north from there through the Kauri forests and along the rugged west coast beaches to Opononi and the Hokianga.
