“Right at the end of Paihia Wharf, soak up the atmosphere at this popular restaurant. I can recommend the pork knuckle but you have to pre-order it as they run out! Call to book on 09 402 8296.”

“Jimmy Jack’s Rib Shack has been running a massive BBQ low & slow style menu for over 10 years in New Zealand. Famous for our Ribs which started from on old American recipe, then developed to be our signature Kiwi BBQ sauce, to meet a New Zealand palate. We truly love ribs…and with over 18 tons of ribs we sell each year is testament to that! That’s just some of the story though…if our subtle charcoal smoked beef burgers don’t make Jimmy Jack’s a favourite then our healthy range of food will – with our salads, sizzle plates and vegetarian options. We have the most loved desserts, steaks, slow smoked favourites, fresh breads & seafood, right through to the largest selection of Rib boards. Jimm”

“Salt Air provide unique scenic flights by plane or helicopter taking in the panoramic scenery of Northland's coastline & its many remote islands. I can't recommend this tour for something a little special.”
