Matakana

The picturesque Matakana region is a foodie's heaven known for its weekend farmers market, boutique food shops and spectacular vineyards.

Only an hour north of Auckland city and close to a myriad of stunning east coast beaches, Matakana is a popular getaway spot for locals and visitors alike. Matakana is foodie heaven - if you enjoy home-grown delicacies and award-winning wine then look no further.

Enjoy a wine-tasting tour at one of the numerous wineries in the region, especially famouss for producing delicious chardonnay, pinot gris and classic red varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Treat yourself to a relaxed gourmet lunch overlooking the vines.

If you’re visiting in the weekend, make sure to stop in at the Matakana Farmers’ Market on a Saturday. The stalls are packed with fresh produce, artisan cheeses, homemade spreads, organic foods, craft beer and olive oils. Enjoy an indulgent brunch of delicious crepes piled high with bacon and maple syrup, or savour hot mussel fritters beside the river.

Afterwards, explore Matakana Village’s galleries, gift stores, fashion boutiques and eateries. The stunning north Auckland beaches of Omaha, Leigh, Pakiri and Tawharanui are all a short drive away, and don’t forget your snorkelling gear – marine reserves such as Goat Island lie just off the coast.
