Māui is a Polynesian Mythological God, yes, as depicted in Moana. But he also has some interesting tales set in Northern part of New Zealand – The Bay Of Islands. For a place that has an unimaginative name – Bay of Islands, it’s a very interesting place. Its a set of 144 islands between Cape Brett and the Purerua Peninsula. With some interesting historic towns like Paihia, Russell, Waitangi and Kerikeri, it’s not just a beautiful place, it’s also a place filled with historic and mythical significance.
