With a multitude of interesting places to visit, you may need some help deciding. Some options Alpha Shuttles would recommend include, Devonport, a stunning harbourside suburb featuring two volcanoes, countless restaurants and cafes and a rich naval history. Another good option not far from the City, is to visit Cornwall Park’s 172 hectares surrounding One Tree Hill which is a great spot for picnics and BBQs but also well known for its beautiful old trees, a working farm and breath-taking views of Auckland.

If you have more time and want to get out of Auckland to see more, get in touch to discuss any combination of the following destinations.

Winery Visits

When it comes to wine tasting in the Auckland Region, you really are spoilt for choice. Alpha Shuttles can take you out West to Kumeu Wine Country, where you can taste the fruity wines of Kerr Farm Vineyard. Other options in this area would be The Riverhead, New Zealands oldest riverside tavern and Hallertau an acclaimed micro-brewery for beer tasting and great food.

We could also head less than an hour North, to Matakana Wine Country where you can visit a range of boutique wineries including Heron’s Flight which is well respected for its beautiful Italian varieties. The region is well known for its farmers market and along the way a stop at the historic village of Puhoi and the Cheese Factory or the Honey Centre would be a strong recommendation.

 

Beaches

Are looking to explore the popular beaches on Auckland’s East Coast? From Orewa in the North to Buckland’s Beach further South, there are some great options and plenty of popular spots along the way, like Long Bay, Takapuna and Mission Bay to name just a few. If however you’re after a more rugged expedition, the West coast beaches of Muriwai, Bethells and Piha can’t be missed, and if you’d like to visit a more remote spot, Alpha Shuttles can highly recommend Whatipu.
