Russell

Russell, the first capital of New Zealand is also a world-renowned game fishing port. Zane Grey famously described Bay of Islands as ‘an angler’s El Dorado’ when he caught his first marlin here in 1926. Tuna, broad bill, kingfish and shark are other potential game fish catches.

With waterfront restaurants and cafes that are the perfect place to catch the evening sun. Visit Zealand’s oldest licensed pub and Christ Church, New Zealand’s oldest church, which is still scarred with musket ball holes from the 1845 fighting. more

Pompallier Mission, the historic printery/tannery/storehouse of the early Roman Catholic missionaries, boasts to be the oldest surviving industrial building in New Zealand. The surrounding area also contains many expensive holiday homes, as well as New Zealand's most expensive rental accommodation.

A car ferry across the Bay of Islands runs between Okiato and Opua, and is the main tourist access to Russell.
