    This little town in the Bay of Islands, NZ is a must see. The best part about Russell is what there is to do there - nothing. Little, laid back, sunny, right on the sea - perfect!

    Russell, a small town in the North Island's Bay of Islands, feels like a tiny New England fishing village. Originally a major whaling and shipping port--as well as New Zealand's first European settlement--Russell is now filled with vacation homes, seafood restaurants, and sailboats. Russell is quieter and cuter than Paihia across the bay.

    Russell is a very cute little town. There are several restaurants available. It's kind of sleepy, not much to do.

    Fantastic little town with a heap of history, beautiful buildings and relaxed atmosphere. Definitely worth the ferry trip across from Paihia to spend the morning walking around the streets followed by nice lunch and then a cruise through the Bay of Islands in the afternoon.

    Great little town that I briefly experienced when I took a day sail on the R Tucker Thompson
