  • Auckland & around


    Auckland, the City of Sails, is New Zealand’s largest city and has a great waterfront  location on the Hauraki Gulf.

    It is a cosmopolitan city with a wide range of dining and wining options and it is also home to Sky Tower, the tallest tower in the Southern Hemisphere. A trip to the viewing platform provides superb views of the city and Hauraki Gulf, and you may wish to take the quick way down by attaching yourselves to a Sky Jump cable and leaping off!

    Auckland’s west coast is a remarkable contrast to the city iself and you can spend time exploring the windswept beaches and the subtropical bush clad hills of the Waitakere Ranges.

    From Auckland you could join a  cruise to Tiritiri Matangi Island out in the Hauraki Gulf.   Here you can see some of New Zealand’s most endangered birds, including the kokako and saddleback, in this open sanctuary.   A guided walk will provide expert commentary on the animal life and the historical and archaeological features of the island.

    Waiheke Island is a short ferry journey from Auckland and, with its beautiful beaches and scenic blend of forest and farmland, is a peaceful sub-tropical escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The island is home to a fantastic range of activities including sea kayaking, mountain biking and vineyard tours.
