New Zealand, the Land of the long white cloud

RussellRussell is a sleepy old whale and swordfish hunting town. The car ferry operates from Opua about every half an hour. Be sure to take a look at the 1st floor of the Bay of Islands Swordfish Club right on the seafront. At sunset, we make a short hike to Flag Hill, a very beautiful vantage point. Back in Opua we had an excellent dinner directly at the ferry house at STELLA MARIS CAFE - mainly fish dishes.
