Take me to....
New Zealand’s largest city offers a lot more than just the shopaholics’ paradise and “spoilt for choice” range of restaurants, theatres, museums and attractions that are immediately obvious and, of course, are all there to be enjoyed.
Today known as "The City of Sails" it lays a sound claim to being the boating capital of New Zealand. There are a myriad of harbour cruise options available and one is never far from the beach.
The greater Auckland region was also the original birthplace of the New Zealand wine industry, with notable wines produced in the west, particularly around Henderson, to the north around Matakana and on Waiheke Island.

The walk is a mix of metalled track and boardwalk and has 3 bridges..In the evening, take the torch, wrap up warmly and visit the glow worms at the stream edges. Stay still for a while, enjoy the sounds of the night bush, the bubbling stream, and become as one with nature.
