Whangarei i-SITE Visitor Information relax

Come and talk to the local experts - our friendly team will help you plan and book your holiday, not only in Whangarei but anywhere in Northland or New Zealand

“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”

Aimee, Information Consultant — Whangarei Information Centres

“Often we are the first port of call for these visitors - don’t just tell them about places they can experience, become part of that experience”

Reana, Information Consultant — Whangarei Information Centres

Whangarei has two information centres, the Whangarei i-SITE Visitor Centre and Te Manawa The Hub Information Centre. The friendly staff are local experts and will provide you with all the ‘insider intel’ about Whangarei District along with impartial information about what you can do, and where you can stay throughout the country.

Both centres offer great displays, information and maps, and are agents for TranzRail, Intercity bus services, and Interislander and Bluebridge ferry services. The booking service is free.
