Journey through a grand landscape where giants of geology, nature, and history are gathered, to the powerful expanse of the Pacific Ocean.

Giants of geology, nature, and history are gathered here, like the majestic creatures that inspired Ngati Wai to name this place Whangārei-te-rerenga-paraoa (the gathering place of whales).

Take the meandering road from Taitokerau Northland’s largest city, all the way to the coast and the boundless Pacific Ocean beyond. Follow the great mass of water that ebbs and flows through the towering Whangārei Heads. Walk in the footsteps of those who carved history out of this colossal landscape and create lasting memories of your own as you journey Where Giants Gather.
