Auckland to Northland – Aerial Photography

Four years ago, I had the privilege of taking a helicopter trip from Auckland to Northland and back again, with a couple of friends. We flew up the beautiful east coast, seeing the many beautiful beaches before stopping at Matai Bay for a refreshing swim. Recently after going through our archives, I found this trip, and really wanted to share the beauty of New Zealand. ~Warren
