Oh my, this is a special tour. Just a short drive from Auckland, Matakana is a beautiful respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. Both residents and visitors alike are finding Matakana hard to resist. The fertile soils, courtesy of the volcanoes that forged this area, provide an overwhelming array of nature's bounty. Your options are almost endless, whether you choose to visit local providers of honey, blueberries, ice cream, wine or oysters. Matakana has all that, not to mention a boutique cuisine scene.

Based on your group's interests, you can choose from a wide variety of activities and attractions, such as a reptile park, a New Zealand Farm Show, an Arts and Crafts Stop, snorkeling at Goat Island Marine Reserve, and, if you happen to be taking this tour on a weekend, the Matakana weekend market, a must-see. Along the Haukari Gulf Coast you will come upon the justifiably famous "Hibiscus Coast", home to turquoise waters, crashing surf and beautiful beaches. Should you so desire, dip a toe in the ocean or take a refreshing swim at Orewa Beach.

With all Matakana has to offer, it won't be a secret for long!
