What Makes Us Special

Our location carries an abundance of NZ pioneering history surrounded by a group of stunning islands. Tourists flock here to visit & learn of NZ's early settlement history, as well as to enjoy the gorgeous bays and superb fishing. Russell is so unique in that it appears to everyone who visits that it is an island, with that laid back island feel. It is however accessible by road and more easily by car ferry.
