Paihia, Russell, Opua & Waitangi
Russell holds an important place in New Zealand's history, being the country's first sea port, its first European settlement and New Zealand's first capital in nearby Okiato. The town's streets retain their original layout and names from 1843, and many of its historic buildings can still be visited today.
If you are going to Russell for wining and dining and would like to stay after the last ferry you can organise a taxi ride back. To guarantee that we will be available, you should pre-book this service.
