Jason loves a bit of adventure and New Zealand is the place to go for anyone wanting to get their adrenalin rushing. It's also a place of extraordinary beauty so there’s something for everyone across The Tasman.
Hokianga on New Zealand’s north island is where Kupe, the fabled Polynesian navigator set out for over 1000 years ago. He named New Zealand "Aotearoa" – Land of the Long White Cloud. It’s believed his canoe is buried somewhere beneath the large sand dunes.
Hokianga Harbour's beaches are white sand and some of the world's largest Kauri trees stand there. It's a place where artists go to seek inspiration.
