“A gem in Auckland area”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

This is probably the best feature in the Auckland region, many islands you can visit for the day or a longer stay. Great scenery and wildlife, good fishing and hiking too

“Memorable sights”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

It's very easy to get out on the Hauraki Gulf. Over many different visits, I've taken ferry trip from the wharf (at the bottom of Queen Street) to the quaint residential suburb of Devonport. Wander awhile amongst old buildings and dine at any one of the great cafes - some with views of the city.
Another ferry goes to Rangitoto which is a volcanic island and offers a unique experience. Trek up to the top of Rangitoto Island for excellent views of the city and the Hauraki Gulf. NB - there are no shops on Rangitoto so you must take enough water and food for last the day. Sunscreen is a must too!
