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.

Maxwells Golf Retreat was set up in year 2000 by Kaye Maxwell a former NZ Golf Champion. Kaye wanted a Retreat for people to be able to chill out, learn to play golf if they wanted or just enjoy being out in the countryside. She wanted her 2 children to experience growing up with the farm animals right next door as she had done. Kaye's love of golf and people is what makes Maxwell's Golf Retreat a unique NZ experience. The Clubhouse hosts private functions, corporate meetings as well as being a little hub for the community with Cafe & Bar. On Friday nights it opens as a Restaurant and Wednesday - Sunday has a Cafe Open. Local shopping in Pukekohe is only a 10 minute drive with an extensive range of shops.
