Auckland & Waiheke Weekend

While not officially the capital of New Zealand, Auckland is the largest and by far the most populated city in the country. It is big, bustling and full of fun. Join us on a whirlwind tour of the wider Auckland area. Friday sees us gathering at the homestay for a cooked meal and a chance to hang out with all the new faces. Saturday means an early start to squeeze in many sights including Mt Eden, Mission Bay, and Bastion Point. A short ferry ride will take us exploring what Waiheke Island has to offer followed by a sunset view over Auckland at the top of the sky tower and a street food style dinner in the city. Sunday is road trip day heading up to Matakana to explore the local markets then it’s off to Goat Island to snorkel through one of the countries most populated marine reserve.
