• Waiheke and Terra & Tide in the Guardian

There are so many reasons to visit the Auckland region that it’s easy to design a holiday tailored to your unique tastes and passions.

And now, there’s even a quiz to help you decide what to see and do. Published in the Australian edition of the Guardian, the quiz is part of a series called Auckland: One City. Two Worlds. (Unfortunately, this article is no longer available on the Guardian website.)

Whether you’re a foodie, an explorer, or a chill-seeker, you’ll want to include Waiheke Island in your plans. As the Guardian says:

…it is in natural works of art that the islands of Hauraki Gulf shine the brightest. Visitors to Waiheke can avail themselves of everything from long lunches at the island’s renowned wineries or relaxing afternoons at sheltered white-sand beaches such as Oneroa and Onetangi.

But to really get away from it all, consider one of the numerous nature walks crisscrossing the island. Terra & Tide offers guided tours of the island’s most striking spots and can create tailor-made itineraries for small groups that take in everything from coastal walks to waterfalls.
