    The Waitangi Treaty Grounds

    The Waitangi Treaty Grounds is the place where Māori chiefs first signed their agreement for land sales with the British Crown. The Treaty Grounds feature the historic Treaty House, the magnificently carved meeting house and the world’s largest ceremonial war canoe. There are also nice walks around the grounds.

    Dolphin Cruise to Hole In The Rock

    For around $100 you can take a dolphin watching cruise out to the famous hole in the rock at Cape Brett. The boat leaves from the Maritime Building on the Waterfront twice a day. This is a well worth while experience while in the Bay of Islands.

    35 Degrees South Aquarium Restaurant

    35 Degrees South Aquarium Restaurant is quite different to most restaurants. There is a huge aquarium full of local fish right in the middle of the dining area. The outside seating is a large deck which is over the water. It's open for lunch and tea. Although most of the seating is outside the entire area is non smoking.

    Alfresco's is a delightful wee restaurant right on the waterfront in Paihia. It's open every day even for breakfast. Very friendly staff and good food. It has live music on Sundays.

    Ruffino's is located upstairs above Paihia's main shops. The food is really good, even the pasta is homemade. It's known for the best pizzas in the area, and is usually very busy. It does takeaways but ordering ahead is wise as there is often a wait.
