Things To Do On The Matakana Coast

Discover the Matakana Coast – your perfect city escape. 

With miles of unspoilt coastline, boutique wineries, artisanal food producers, a vibrant art and music scene and easy access to land and sea, it’s no surprise that the Matakana Coast is Auckland’s weekend destination of choice. 

Experience the Matakana region by air, on a scenic helicopter flight over white sandy beaches, Tāwharanui Regional Park, forests and so much more.

Pack the swimsuits and surfboards and discover some of New Zealand’s finest white sand beaches, right here on Auckland City’s doorstep. Catch some live music, stroll through a world-class sculpture park, get up close with rare birds and sea life or discover the culture and heritage of this historic region.  

Foodies will love meeting the growers and producers of this fertile food bowl. Visit the famous Matakana Village Farmers’ Market, stop for a tasting at an award-winning craft brewery or boutique vineyard, or dine out at the many local eateries.
