Auckland boasts a wealth of exciting attractions to experience from fascinating museums to the popular Sky Tower rising above the city. A day trip to nearby Waiheke Island (40 minutes by ferry) home to renowned wineries and superb restaurants is well worth exploring.

Finally travel south-east to Hawke’s Bay – renowned for its vineyards and local food – and stay at The Farm at Cape Kidnappers, a beautiful hilltop property set along rugged cliffs. Enjoy guided walks across the landscape, search for the native Kiwi or take to one of the many trails by mountain bike. Both properties have been awarded Relais & Châteaux status and are home to outstanding golf courses with incredible vistas overlooking the ocean.
