An hour north of Auckland, near the bohemian village of Puhoi and the colonial town of Warkworth, the Matakana area is famed for its food, wine and thriving arts scene.
There is a selection of small family run wineries as well as sandy arcs of coastline washed by rolling Pacific surf. Matakana provides a perfect break in the drive between the Bay of Islands and Auckland.
