About the Northland
Working in beautiful Northland provides the opportunity to enjoy a lifestyle unrivalled in New Zealand. Take a look at https://www.northlandnz.com/visit/
As the northernmost and warmest of New Zealand's 16 regions, Northland is known as the 'winterless North'. The low elevation and close proximity to the sea result in a mild, subtropical and rather windy climate. Our region is a combination of natural taonga such as golden beaches, secluded coves, breath taking seascapes, ancient forests, and a rich tapestry of flora and fauna.
