Overview

There’s something about Matakana Village… Perhaps it’s the fresh country air, the artisanal food and award-winning wine, or the stylish boutiques and galleries you simply won’t find in the city. Whether you’re catching up with friends in one of our eateries, meeting the makers at the famous Matakana Village Farmers’ Market or watching an arthouse film in the magnificent cinema, a visit to Matakana comes with memories to treasure. From the cascading cherry blossoms of spring to the riches of autumn leaves, you’ll find something to savour in every season. Just 45 minutes from the Auckland Harbour Bridge, yet a world away – there’s so much to love in Matakana Village.

A group of us went there and had a great time, a real country 'fair' type atmosphere, we've been back a number of times and the Matakana Village has always afforded us a good time. The very best time is in spring when the trees...More

Most people come here for the market rather than the village. But that's OK. The market gets very crowded and parking is hard to find - prepare to walk a wee way (5 minutes). There is a fair bit of produce available - they say...More
