Bay of Islands
Busby Manor is nestled near Paihia Beach, old colonial houses, and Williams Memorial Church, site of New Zealand's first wedding in 1830. Located in the heart of the Bay of Islands, this area boasts more than 150 bush-clad sandy-beached islands, which with their unspoiled beauty, are a mariner's dream. The whole region is steeped in history, boating, and fishing. Visit the Kelly Tarlton Shipwreck Museum, or the famous Treaty House, where in 1840, the Treaty of Waitangi was signed. For the golfer, experience breathtaking views from each of the nearby course's 18 holes.
