    Attractions

    Auckland Zoo

    Our family really enjoyed visiting this zoo. Particularly the great window where you can watch the seals swim past. They have a lot of great animals who all seem pretty content. The day we went the elephant and zoo keeper came onto the lawn while we were eating our picnic lunch! They have good facilities available so you can spend a whole day there if you want. Take insect repellent. We got ravaged by mosquitoes as we sat by a very lovely Japanese pond.

    The perfect way to unwind after a skiing holiday. Talented, charming therapists and a calm and soothing decor.

    Beautiful green space in Auckland City Centre. The 75ha park has been developed around the cone of an extinct volcano. Lovely gardens to walk around and the Auckland Museum within The Domain.

    Laura Thomas

    Such a lovely, clean and relaxing gallery with a lot of good art to see but not so much that you leave shattered and all art'ed out! Lovely cafe there too. Right beside Albert Park for a walk before or afterwards.

    When driving west out of Waihi along SH2 you quickly encounter the Karangahake Gorge, which is a very nice area to spend a bit of time in this area of Coromandel. Some amazing walks but with steep steps and also dark tunnels so good walking shoes and a torch essential. Turn your flashlight off when you are in the pump room, and when your eyes are accustomed to the dark you should see glowworms.

    Places To Eat

    EKIM Burgers

    These burgers are delicious! And not badly priced. Yummy fresh ingredients and great flavour combos. The chips are chunky and come with home made tomato sauce. It's a great spot they've got on the corner of busy Cuba St, and I love the repurposed caravans.

    The Goat in the Boat Restaurant

    An interesting name for a wonderful, welcoming place. Maria greeted us warmly as soon as we arrived and made us feel right at home. We both chose the souvlaki and could tell it was made with love. Want to know how it got its name? You'll have to ask Maria yourself!

    Tucked in the back of an Irish shop in a the gorgeous heritage area of the Rocks, The Tea Cozy serve a good old-fashioned Devonshire tea, with loose leaf tea in vintage teapots (including cosy of course!), and fresh homemade scones with regional gourmet jam.

    The most amazing cafe/bakery food in Auckland in a quaint and quirky atmosphere. They also have a sister shop in Newmarket.

    This is THE place in Auckland. The venue is amazing right in front of all the yachts and the food and service is just perfect. The waiting staff are so attentive that you don't even need to fill up your own water glass! Food is delicious and the atmosphere great whether your in for eats or in for drinks.

    Ferry to Cooks Beach

    There is a ferry to Cooks beach. The ferry runs between the Whitianga wharf on the Esplanade and Ferry Landing. It's the best way to explore the other side of the harbour without driving.

    Stop Over

    It only makes sense to leave or arrive in Northland via the west coast. The drive is so scenic and Dargaville is the ideal place to stop.

    Last city of the North

    Whangarei is the last city when you're heading North with all amenities and a range of shopping. The towns further up the island offer all services but the range is limited.

    Facts about Pacific

    Oldest yet finest

    It's no wonder the wines here are great - the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine producing regions, and one of the world's finest. You'll be spoilt for choice amongst the 150 wineries there, I know I was!

    Waitarere Beach

    Waitarere is a quiet seaside village with a very long beach - many places to walk and cycle or walk on the beach or in the forest.

    "The quiet part of the Bay"

    The sleepy little seaside village of Soldiers Point is regarded by locals and regular Sydney visitors as the "quiet part of the Bay'...especially around Christmas/New Year & Easter holiday times..!

    Culture and food capital of New Zealand

    Wellington has been named the culture and food capital of New Zealand with it being crammed with more bars, cafés and restaurants per capita than New York! It is also home to the wearable arts show and many amazing artists call Wellington home.
