Drive Your Motorhome through Whangarei’s History

When you choose campervan rentals in Whangarei, you’ll be able to enjoy the history that the city has to offer. Not only will you have access to lots of fun activities, but you’ll also be able to enjoy the history and culture of the city’s past.

The city of Whangarei is the most northern city in New Zealand, as well as being the regional capital of Northland Region. Whangarei is popular amongst seasonal tourists and residents because the city falls in the oceanic climate zone. The resulting weather means that summer days often exceed 30 Celsius, with plenty of rainfall that is spread evenly over the year.

The city was once the most urbanised area in Northland and saw a substantial growth, especially towards the end of the 19th century. In the 20th century however, the growth began to slow, and whilst the city remains vibrant and busy, its population has risen much less slowly. Whangarei was declared as a city in 1965 despite the reduced rate of growth of the 20th century. Much of the reason for the decline in growth in the city was due to the popularity of terrestrial travel routes forcing a decline in the demand for coastal shipping.
