After your wine tasting experience sit back, relax and enjoy a lunch and a glass of Waiheke wine or beer at a local favorite before heading back to the ferry.

Takapuna

Auckland
This vibrant city is well known as the City of Sails for its unique twin harbours, that are home to more than 500,000 sail boats and an endless number of beaches. You’ll be within a 30-minute drive from the ocean where ever you are in the city. Adding to Auckland’s fascinating identity are the 48 volcanic cones settled amongst the city. Visit one of these craters for 360° views of Auckland and beyond.

There is more to explore, with about 50 islands in the Auckland region.

Fiordland National Park (The Sounds)
One of the most dramatically beautiful destinations in New Zealand, where the air is fresh and the water is crisp.

Melbourne
Once the richest city in the world thanks to a gold rush, Melbourne is Australia's cultural capital with striking architecture, chic galleries and boutiques. Wave at a wallaby or get close to a koala at a wildlife park. Feel closer to the land on a ride on the Puffing Billy steam locomotive through the mountains and countryside.

Burnie
A community of artisans on the northwest coast of Tasmania, Burnie has long a history as a community that makes things, with locally crafted European-style cheeses, fine papers, ceramics and single-malt whisky. Surrounded by accessible wilderness areas, in Burnie you can still get a glimpse of little penguins and the platypus, a duck-billed mammal, in the wild. The vibrant shopping district spills onto the beach where you can sit down at a café and watch the world slow down for a little while.

Eden
The town's name reflects what you will indeed find in Eden - a beautiful natural wonderland. Situated on the rugged coastline of Australia's New South Wales, Eden is nestled among national parks, wilderness areas and enticing beaches. It's one of Australia's best locations for oyster farming, so bring your appetite. Eden and its surrounding landscapes offer an abundance of outdoor activities on the water and by land.
