Fuller's ferry over to Waiheke for the day! Such a beautiful way to spend a day away from the city, the difference is wonderful! $36 return on the ferry and $9 if you want a bus pass for the day to get around the island, though walking around is lovely as well! Oneroa is a cute little town with a nice beach, has a good spot for ice cream too! Get out there and enjoy it!

The Hauraki Gulf is stunning with lots of islands - some of which you can visit. Rangitoto island dominates the gulf with its distinctive look which is the same from all angles!

Waiheke Island is my favourite with gorgeous beaches and wineries strewn across the lush landscape.

If you come to Auckland make sure to spend a lot of time on the water ...

On a clear day catch the 10 am Fullers ferry to Waiheke Island and start your journey with picture perfect views of downtown Auckland and the Sky Tower. A tour bus round the island, lunch at Mudbrick Winery, and return ferry complete the adventure.

We took the ferry from downtown Auckland to the beautiful island of Waiheke which absolutely made our weekend. The white sandy beaches were simply stunning and you are spoilt for choice as regards which winery to visit. The pace of life seemed perfect, getting around the island by bus simple and there are many fine restaurants and bars to visit. The ferry journey takes only 35 mins and the run on the hour every hour during the day. The journey across the bay is stunning with the views spectacular. We could so easily have missed out on this trip if it wasn't recommended to us by an American couple we met in the Bay of Islands. We are glad we met them as Waiheke is truly a magical place. Highly recommended.
