The Northland Region of New Zealand is located on the North Island and occupies the far northern section of the peninsula. The west coast has long stretches on soft beaches that includes possibly one of the most beautiful beaches in New Zealand; "Ninety Mile Beach" where miles of desolate sand dunes are broken by the visions of herds of wild horses galloping along the edge of the ocean. The beaches on the east coast are more rugged with islands and numerous bays. The east coast is also the location of the Karikari Peninsula and an extensive wetland area known as Waimango Swamp. Between the Karikari Bay and the Waimongo Swamp the area is a wetland habitat for migrating birds and unique fish species. A major forest in the area is the Waipoua Kauri Forest, a subtropical rain forest. The Waipoua tree species is a native New Zealand conifer and the oldest tree on the island, "Te Matua Ngahere", and it is believed to be over 2,300 years old.
