Chances are you will arrive in New Zealand via Auckland, the country’s largest city and where about a third of the population choose to live. With its temperate climate and reverse summer to the UK it is an ideal warm winter destination and once in the city travelling around is easy – roads are delightfully uncrowded and the beaches to the west are in wither Woodhill Forest of Auckland Centennial Park with dramatic with black sand and often great surf. Travelling further north takes you to the famous Bay of Islands whilst across the water to the east offers paradise islands such as Waiheke reached in only 35 minutes by boat. If you are now ‘sanded’ out you’ll be happy to learn that the stunning Takatu Peninsula is home to a thriving coastal wine making industry – charming boutique lodges provide respite from the inevitable wine tasting tours!
