June 3 - New Zealand Provincial Barbarians v British & Irish Lions
With the DHL New Zealand Lions Series 2017 kicking off in Whangarei, fans have the perfect opportunity to continue north and explore the Bay of Islands and the wider Northland region.
The Twin Coast Discovery highway runs the length of Northland’s east and west coasts – connecting all tourist highlights including 90 Mile Beach and Tane Mahuta – the largest Kauri tree in the world, thought to be approximately 2,000 years old. Waitangi in the Bay of Islands is the birthplace of the nation, where Māori chiefs and the British Crown signed the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840.
The match on June 3 is in Whangarei, the main city of the Northland region, a 35-minute flight or an easy two-hour drive from Auckland.
