Matakana Market and Wineries Tour from Auckland City

  • My lists

Matakana Market and Wineries Tour from Auckland City

Uncover the treasures of the Matakana region, Auckland's boutique wine-growing region. It's a scenic 45 minutes north of Auckland CBD to experience the farmers' markets, vineyards, cheese, honey and so much more. With beautiful countryside dipping down to the ocean, stunning beaches, local fishing villages and quirky shops there is something for everyone here. We will visit a minimum of two wineries, more if time allows. Purchase our Gold Tour to also include Auckland's latest must do-attraction, Sculptureum. Take a walk through the amazing indoor and outdoor sculpture galleries - this is where art meets fantasyland! Morning coffee and fresh fish lunch (alternate options available) are included in your tour. On our return journey, optional stop-offs can include a craft alehouse, cheese-makers, and viewing an 800-year-old Kauri tree, or maybe try an artisan chocolate tasting to finish the day in style before we head back to the city for a 5pm finish.
