Northland heritage sites
Northland was the cradle of both Maori and European settlement of New Zealand.
For both cultures the North has had a long, fascinating and at times turbulent past, and Northland's landscapes, historic sites and buildings still reflect this history: the signs of the past remain clear on the face of the land.
Northland/Te Taitokerau contains a wealth of significant historic heritage and is considered the 'Cradle of the Nation'. Find out about prehistoric Taitokerau, European "discovery" and colonisation, and settlement and industry.
