Matakana Village Website: JUST 40 MINUTES NORTH OF AUCKLAND lies the picturesque Matakana wine region, the home of over 30 boutique vineyards, olive groves, restaurants and the famous Matakana Village and Farmers’ Market featuring locally grown food and produce.
Lone Kauri Road, Karekare, signposted off Phia Road and its a 1 hour trip. Check out this fabulous waterfall. An awesome place for a wedding. Ensure you check with Auckland council first of course. To me, this is what NZ is all about. Get married here, then whisk your guests and new husband/wife away to your reception - perfect!
