The Landing offers the ultimate luxury New Zealand adventure holiday, with as much action as you can handle.
As a guest of The Residences, the vast The Landing property is at your disposal, including six private beaches, farmland, heritage trails, bird-watching walks, bike tracks and quiet waters perfect for kayaking and paddleboarding.
The entire playground of the Bay of Islands is on your doorstep, offering the world's finest game fishing, sailing, diving and golf.
The Residences hospitality team can arrange all activities, trips and personal tours as required and our private helicopter is available on request.
Fishing, diving and watersports
The Bay of Islands is famous for its impressive game fish, including marlin, tuna and shark. The area also offers spectacular snorkelling and scuba diving, including wreck diving and diving in season for scallops and crayfish.
The Landing's resident 28-foot rigid hull inflatable, Protector, can be booked for skippered half- and full-day fishing and sightseeing trips.
The Bay of Islands and wider Northland region are excellent locations for sailing, kayaking, waterskiing, surfing and a wide range of other watersports. Many of these can be enjoyed directly from The Landing, which has its own boat ramp and deep-water jetty and wash-down facilities.
Hiking, mountain biking, beaches
The Landing is crossed with a network of boardwalks, walking trails and mountain bike tracks, leading through native bush reserves, wetland areas and farm paddocks. This is an excellent way to explore the property, taking in magnificent rural and sea views and many sites of natural and heritage interest.
The six private beaches at The Landing can be accessed for safe boating and swimming at all tides, making it ideal for family beach holidays. Hundreds of other beautiful beaches are also within easy reach of The Landing. These range from quiet, secluded white-sand bays accessible only by boat to wild west coast surf beaches a short helicopter flight away.
Golf and family holiday activities
Kauri Cliffs, considered to be one of the world's greatest golf courses, is just five minutes by helicopter or 40 minutes by car from The Landing.
Many other fine golf courses are also located in the region, including the famous course at Waitangi and the PGA tournament-quality Carrington course on the Karikari Peninsula.
A wide range of Northland family holiday activities are accessible within an hour's helicopter flight, including glow-worm caves and the ancient kauri forests at Hokianga.
Between November and April, whale watching and swimming with dolphins from nearby Paihia and Russell are popular day trips, and horseriding is available year-round.
