    Stop At: Auckland Domain, Park Road, Auckland Central, Auckland New Zealand

    Besides the beautiful surroundings, entering Auckland Domain will surprise you at how big it is, and how many beautiful spots there are to just sit down and relax! Also, there is a duck pond which has a fountain in it, and that makes for happy ducks! The excellent Auckland Museum is also found within Auckland Domain. Sitting on the green grass surrounded by the pink flowers, you could only hear the birds and feel the gentle wind blow your face.

    Stop At: Bastion Point, Hapimana Street, Mission Bay, Auckland 1071 New Zealand

    Bastion Point offers magnificent views out over the Hauraki Gulf and Waitematā Harbour, as well as back to central Auckland. It’s one of the best places in Auckland to take photos of the skyline and harbour. As the name suggests, its position overlooking the harbour makes it an ideal defence point for the city. The Māori name for this area is Takaparawhā. This scenic area includes the Savage Memorial, which commemorates Michael Joseph Savage, one of New Zealand’s most beloved prime ministers.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Achilles Point, Cliff Road St Heliers Bay, Auckland Central, Auckland 2004 New Zealand

    Achilles Point was originally named Te Pane o Horoiwi (the head of Horoiwi) due to the Maori history of the site. It was renamed by the council in 1940 in honour of the New Zealand crewed ship HMS Achilles. The HMS Achilles defeated the German cruiser Graf Spee in the 1939 Battle of the River Plate, the first major naval battle of World War II. Achilles Point has great views of the Waitemata Harbour, and of course the Gulf Islands. Not so much a venue for actvities, but the views say it all..

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Pass By: Tamaki Drive, Tamaki, Auckland Central, Auckland New Zealand

    Coastal Drive through Kohimarama, Mission Bay and Tamaki Drive before proceeding to Auckland’s west coast.

    Stop At: Mount Victoria Reserve, Kerr Street, Devonport, Auckland New Zealand

    Travel across the Auckland Harbour Bridge and take in 360-degree views of the city on your way to the North Shore of Auckland.

Drive through Victorian suburbs and bustling shopping centres and travel North West to discovery, culture, creativity, adventure, fine food and wine.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Coopers Creek Vineyard, 601 State Highway 16, Kumeū 0891, New Zealand

    Stop At: Muriwai Gannet Colony, 428 Motutara Rd Waitakere, Muriwai Beach, Auckland 0881 New Zealand

    Arrive at the Wild West coast black sand beach of Muriwai. Exploring this area, you will be amazed by the rugged coastline, unique black sand and the feel of raw natural power that surrounds the area. Though the waves are thundering and the sand a unique shade of black, Muriwai is one of the best New Zealand beaches to kick off you shoes, feel the sand between your toes and watch the world go by. The expansive landscape that reaches as far as the eye can see, and swell gushing in from the Tasman Sea, allows you to feel the true force of natural New Zealand. See Gannets nesting and flying over rock outcrops and black sand beaches. The gannet colony is in residence from August to March. Here you get a close-up of the gannet colony without disturbing their environment. When the tour ends in the afternoon, you'll leave Auckland with a day you'll never forget.
