Russell – Orongo Bay Holiday Park and Bike Hire

“Beautiful birds in the Bay of Islands. Not only a beautiful campsite with lovely facilities, but as a bird sanctuary guests have the chance to see native New Zealand birds right next to their tents! We had a family of weka and piwakawaka with us our whole stay. 10/10 would recommend – a real treasure!!” Beckie March 21
