heading to Waiheke Island

the island of wine + adventure


Only a 40 minute ferry ride from downtown Auckland, Waiheke Island boasts beautiful beaches, bohemian artists and award-winning vineyards, olive groves and restaurants. It’s a great day trip from Auckland as well as a superb holiday destination or a weekend getaway. A great way to make the most of a day trip is to combine your ferry ticket with one of our great value island tours – there’s a tour to suit everyone. For the more adventurous, other activities on the island include zip lining, ocean kayaking and mountain biking.

Waiheke Island’s micro-climate is perfectly suited to wine making, with over 30 vineyards on the island, many with restaurants and cafes. If wine isn't quite your thing, there’s plenty of natural beauty to explore, with scenic walking tracks and beaches minutes away from arriving at Matiatia Wharf. Waiheke remains home to a considerable bohemian artistic community with many local galleries and hosts an annual sculpture festival each January.
