My new zealand trip
Collected by Margaret Joyce
Unit 3 a, Matiatia wharf, Matiatia, 6 Oceanview Rd, Waiheke Island, Auckland 1081, New Zealand
We originally planned to rent bikes to visit the wineries on Waiheke Island, but due to the threat of rain, we decided to rent a car. Unexpectedly, we ended up with a roadster with bat-wing doors (felt like it would break down at any minute, but...
Oneroa, Auckland, New Zealand
Only 35 minutes away from Auckland City by ferry, Mudbrick Restaurant is one of the gems of Waiheke Island. A short taxi ride from Matiatia Wharf and you're there - trying to decide whether you should be looking at the view or the menu. A...
35 Hobson St, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
The former Farmers department store in the heart of Auckland is the place to stay when visiting this city. The Heritage Auckland has a variety of rooms with great facilities, beautiful local art work on each floor, and spectacular views across the...
33 Sale St, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
The restaurant’s decor plays with industrial roughness and sumptuous luxury in a really intelligent way. Rich leathers and curtains of black cord enfold each round table, while overhead concrete beams and ductwork are left exposed. I love to...
Rangitoto Island, Auckland 1010, New Zealand
In the Hauraki Gulf, Rangitoto Island is just a short, not to mention highly enjoyable, 25-minute ferry ride from Auckand. The unpopulated island is actually a shield volcano that is the youngest (only 600 years old!) in the Auckland Volcanic...
20 Sea View Rd, Ostend, Waiheke Island 1081, New Zealand
Waiheke Island is carved with numerous scalloped coves along the leafy mountain coastline about 45 minutes from Auckland. It’s both the weekend retreat for New Zealand’s upper crusts and full time home for eclectic middle-age men and women who...
2 High St, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
This funky boutique hotel on the edge of the Britomart shopping district goes way back in Auckland history. Built in 1841 as The Commercial Hotel, the DeBrett building survived two fires and two rebuilds plus a stint as a hostel before becoming...
Britomart Place, 22 Customs St E, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
Christchurch, New Zealand
Lonely Planet voted Christchurch one of the Top 10 cities to visit in 2013. The gateway to New Zealand's South Island, vibrant Christchurch is surrounded by a region of natural wonders. A city where you can cycle alongside the river, indulge in...
11 Shakespeare Rd, Bluff Hill, Napier 4110, New Zealand
Napier is known as the Art Deco capital of New Zealand (and probably the world). Yet there's more to this North Island city than white-walled tires, funky hats and oddly-proportioned buildings. The Cabana is an institution in the Southern...
