Head 40 kilo­me­tres west of Auck­land to Piha Beach. New Zealand’s fa­mous surf des­ti­na­tion is known for its black iron sand. Take a tour of the re­gion, which in­cludes nearby rain­forests, with Bush and Beach (bushand­beach.co.nz).

NAPIER 412 kilo­me­tres south­east of Auck­land

Nes­tled in the hills of the Hawke’s Bay re­gion, Ele­phant Hill (ele­phanthill. co.nz) is a lush oa­sis that over­looks the Te Awanga coast. The fam­ily-run win­ery makes just 21,500 cases a year. Stay for lunch (and wine) on the restau­rant pa­tio.

Bring home a piece of New Zealand from Kura Gallery (kura­gallery.co.nz). This artis­tic hub sells works from the coun­try’s artists, in­clud­ing mem­bers of its in­dige­nous Maori pop­u­la­tion.
