Things to do in North Island, New Zealand

Although The Sanctuary offers a pleasant retreat from the busy ups and downs of life, it’s also in a location convenient to some pleasant distractions. The relaxing Paihia Harbour area is less than three miles away. On the other side of the spectrum, you can enjoy a nice hike through Opua Forest, which is only a few minutes away as well. Russell Museum is around three miles from The Sanctuary, which provides an enjoyable, yet educational experience for the whole family. If you feel like being a little more adventurous, you can take a trek over to Haruru Falls.
