Auckland Region

Surrounded by fertile land and pristine waters, Auckland has always had great produce on its doorstep. These days it also boasts world class chefs, food producers and winemakers and offers something for every epicurean.


There is an abundance of gastronomic pleasures throughout the region – and best of all they usually come surrounded by spectacular scenery. Cheese lovers can visit the Puhoi Valley Café and Cheese Store, where award-winning cheeses are made onsite, seafood connoisseurs can dine on fresh fare in one of the many harbourside restaurants, and a great cup of coffee is never far.


The region’s wide range of culinary delights reflects Auckland’s diverse cultural mix, from tasty Asian and Mexican to indulgent Italian, French and Mediterranean delights.


The Auckland Fish Market is a popular place to pick up the freshest seafood or enjoy a delicious fish and chip lunch, while the recent developments in Auckland’s waterfront areas have seen a plethora of new restaurants, bistros, pubs and bars emerge.


The boutique village of Matakana to the north is making a name for itself as a gourmet ‘slow food’ destination, producing organic local food and superb wine. Auckland is surrounded by wine regions producing many award-winners - Kumeu in the west has Auckland’s oldest established vineyards and stunning Waiheke Island, the jewel of Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf, is known as ‘the island of wine’.
