- The Auckland region is a great place for sports fans! Cricket, Rugby, League, Basketball, Netball, Tennis, Soccer, Swimming, Sailing. All are popular sports with international events on year round.
- Whakarewarewa is also the home of a thermal village. The Tuhourangi Ngati Wahio people have long lived in the area and the geothermal activities are now a way of life. Check out their cultural performances (twice daily), learn about their myths and legends and find out about the area's history. Time it right and you could see the Prince of Wales Feathers & Pohutu geysers in action from dedicated viewing platforms.
- Lord of the Rings fans should make a trip to Matamata - home of the hobbits. Take a tour and see inside Bilbo's house.
- If you'd like a game of golf, perhaps Kinloch is the way to go? Bob Charles thinks so "Having just played Kinloch for the first time I can honestly say this is the # 1 golf course in New Zealand. For those unable to play the great links courses of Scotland, Kinloch compares with the best of them."
