Hotel pick-up and drop-off in Auckland, professional and friendly guide, travel in luxury air-conditioned vehicle, sumptuous lunch
This delightful day tour begins with front door pick – up at your Auckland accommodation. From here we travel North on roads winding through beautiful rolling hills spotted with sheep and other livestock. We stop off at the Honey Bee Centre to watch the bees through the glass as they create our delicious New Zealand honey, while we sample numerous varieties from labelled jars on a special sampling table in the shop. Here you may purchase just about anything you can imagine being made from honey, as well as New Zealand’s own “Buzzy Bee” toys.
Afterward, we make our way to the historic Bohemian village of Puhoi for a sightseeing tour including St. Peter and Paul’s Catholic Church, where mass is still read in Latin, and the Puhoi Pub with its “talking walls.” While in Puhoi, we visit the “Art of Cheese” café and cheese shop for a delightful lunch.
Then we’re off to one of the big highlights of the day – Sheepworld’s lively and entertaining farm show!
After being entertained and educated by the animals and their trainers at Sheepworld, we will drive to the Warkworth Museum, where you not only get to visit the museum, but take a short bush walk if you choose, through the Parry Kauri Forest to see the native New Zealand Kauri trees, among other native bush. This is the last activity before heading back to your accommodation in Auckland, approximately 1 hour’s drive south.
