EXTEND YOUR STAY AND DISCOVER AUCKLAND & THE HAURAKI GULF

While you are in Auckland for the Art Fair, why not extend your stay with short trip up North to Matakana, a quick ferry to Waiheke Island or a four-day yacht charter?  In partnership with Southern Crossings we’ve devised one and two night stays which include accommodation and a suggested itinerary for you to enjoy the best art experiences unique to both places.

Alternatively, get out on the water this summer with 37 South, a leading full service superyacht support provider which specialises in yacht charters. They have devised a sample four-day itinerary which includes stops at the Auckland Waterfront, America’s Cup team bases, Waiheke Island, Great Barrier Island, and Arid Island.
