The Landing is the vision and personal passion of Peter Cooper, a New Zealander who divides his time between New Zealand and the US. Peter is the founder and Executive Chairman of Cooper and Company, a private investment company whose New Zealand interests include the Britomart development in downtown Auckland.

Located at the tip of the Purerua Peninsula at the northern head of the Bay of Islands, The Landing is a spectacular property with its own rich history. It was on this coastal setting that the Maori and Europeans first met, exchanged goods, language and culture to create a new nation, making it one of New Zealand’s most historically significant sites. Today, The Landing has been regenerated as a unique heritage and conservation property, home to a handful of luxury residences, farmland and an award-winning vineyard.


The Landing is situated at the southwestern tip of the Purerua Peninsula in the Bay of Islands, located in the far north of New Zealand’s North Island. The Bay of Islands is famed for its long sunshine hours, world-class boating, diving and fishing and abundance of fresh produce.


The Landing stands on some of New Zealand’s most historically significant land and has been developed with the blessing and contribution of the local iwi (Maori Tribes). The property has several sites of particular cultural and heritage importance, and the land where these lie is held in a charitable trust to ensure their preservation.
