  • Tailor made touring holidays to Auckland and environs

    Auckland and environs image N
    Flying in to Auckland sets the tone of a trip to New Zealand in many ways; you see an expanse of water and shades of green of volcanic hilly peaks and open grassy fields. The vista is unashamedly attractive; eye-catchingly pretty and incredibly welcoming. Auckland is New Zealand’s largest and fastest-growing city. It has a feel that is at once historic with its houses of timber weatherboard, corrugated iron rooves, gables, bays and decorative fretwork yet also forward-looking with striking modern architecture, the redeveloped waterfront and the 328 metre high Sky Tower. Above all, Auckland is a city on the water. Dominated by Waitemata Harbour, Auckland probably has the most pleasure boats per capita of any city in the world. Sailing is perfect with safe harbours, nearby islands to visit and a temperate climate. Just across the harbour are the Hauraki Gulf Islands, some of the most idyllic islands in the world, either as perfect recreational spots for people or as protected sanctuaries for rare birds and native trees and plants. Waiheke Island is one of the largest and whilst people do commute the 30 minutes or so by ferry to Auckland, it is also a beautiful holiday spot with its white sand beaches and coves, vineyards and olive groves. Not far from Auckland are surf beaches on the western coast, Orewa’s 2 mile sandy beach forty minutes’ away, vineyards at Henderson about an hour away and fruit and vegetables at Kumeu.

    The climate

    Australia’s size results in a variable climate. The expansive interior is hot throughout the year but can often be very cold at night. The southern third of the country enjoys warm summers (December – March) and mild winters (June – August), although there are extremes of this, such as in the alpine country of New South Wales and Victoria where winters are a lot colder. The far north of the country has just two seasons because of its position on the monsoon belt – hot and wet, and hot and dry.

    Climate
    New Zealand enjoys a maritime climate, which explains partly the lush vegetation and the rich pastures, but also makes it very changeable. It is subject to prevailing winds from west to east although most rain falls in winter (June to August) and the summer months (December to March) are generally drier. The southern and western parts of the country are wetter than the northern and the eastern parts. On top of this longitude and altitude plays a role, with the northern part of the North Island enjoying an almost ‘winter-free’ year and being subtropical.
