New Zealand North Island
The North Island of New Zealand is probably most famous for its geothermal activities in the form of bubbling mud pools, steaming fumaroles, spouting geysers and a semi active belt of volcanoes stretching from Tongariro National Park to White Island. As the largest freshwater lake in Australasia, Lake Taupo lies in a caldera which was formed by a violent super volcanic eruption thousands of years ago. Today it boasts the best trout fishing in NZ.
North Island is home to many other natural wonders such as the underground glow worm caves of Waitomo, the rugged rainforest and white sandy beaches of the Coromandel and the abundant marine life and dive sites within the beautiful Bay of Islands. If art and culture is more your thing, Napier is renowned for its art deco splendour and the island’s capital Wellington has an abundance of charm, gourmet cafes, museums and art galleries. As a potential destination for a doctor, this is hard to beat.
Both North and South Island of NZ are free of poisonous snakes, spiders and jellyfish which makes this destination once of the most peaceful in Australasia.
North Island has a choice of 27 major, rural and regional hospitals located throughout the island covering an extensive range of medical services and health care.
