It’s Auckland’s “ONE and ONLY”
Coast and Country tour
– and –
we guarantee it’s
NO other tours of Auckland
will provide you with this experience.
…Because this tour INCLUDES the visit to our own *private* sheep farm
and historic Homestead (where no other tour goes),
Lunch (with wine/beer), afternoon tea, PLUS carbon offset too!
CHECK out how “expensive” the other Auckland tours are
(things on our tour are not included on the others!)
Trust the SPECIALISTS for coast & country experiences
…because you tour the region where we LIVE
Many folk make the assumption that; “no way will they be able to find enough things to do to fill a whole day just 40 minutes from the city!!”
So they opt to go further afield… and the result is them spending most of their precious time traveling…and very little time experiencing!!!
Believe us, there is a lot to do on our tour, and you will feel like you are in another world in the countryside where we will take you
…so just question;
“Why would you waste time cooped up in a bus traveling for miles, when you can see and do SO much
-ALL- on this one day tour of the Auckland countryside?”
And, “why visit all Public places, when on this tour you get to go somewhere Private?”
There are many other Auckland tour companies that visit this west Auckland Muriwai region.
Driving out, they will be passing our farm looking at the farmland and animals from the vehicle…
… our difference is:
YOU get to come IN to TOUCH
>>> no other tour has access to our farm <<<
We are the tour company that LIVES at Muriwai Beach…(since 1922 !!)
This tour is based along the route to our *private* sheep farm …and is no more than 40 minutes from Auckland city

On this unique Auckland tour, you’ll take in the best west Auckland coast & country attractions!
Moments after your pick-up, get straight into doing some serious shopping for genuine New Zealand products at a huge shop called CRAFTWORLD (1) (There’s NO pressure-selling, and we pass the full 15% discount voucher onto you, …not pocket a 10% commission like other Auckland Day Tours do!). You’ll next enjoy a WINE TASTING EXPERIENCE (2) at an award-winning winery, in the Historic wine producing region of Kumeu, and then choose your upmarket lunch which is usually at Provenance restaurant. (Lunch includes an alcoholic beverage if you desire!) (3). Taking your tour with us means you’ll visit the world-famous takapu GANNET COLONY (4) and you will see MURIWAI beach, with the tour company that actually LIVES there! Muriwai is one of west Auckland’s black iron-sand beaches, and the wild Tasman Sea coastline is very impressive. Stuart takes you out on a guided tour, and it’s (an easy) walk along the beach where he will pick you up! Just 7 minutes away, is our New Zealand SHEEP FARM (5), where you will be welcomed (-in Maori-), into our historic Homestead. You will be shown around, and be able to take in the New Zealand-lifestyle of our typical family home. We will run you through a HONEY-tasting of NZ Manuka honey (and others!). Then outside, you will be able to feed and touch pet New Zealand sheep and see our other ANIMALS and BIRDS. Come for a walk through our New Zealand native GARDEN and our home ORCHARD on the way over to our historic (1930’s) WOOLSHED for a display on wool and New Zealand sheep farming. Coast to Coast Tours offset their tour carbon EMISSIONS with our “unique-to-Auckland” tree planting project. It’s then back to the Homestead to freshen-up for AFTERNOON TEA …(Donna’s homemade Pavlova)
WE are Food Handling Certified!
LUNCH (along with wine/beer), is also included …and it’s your choice of one main from the upmarket cafe menu.
But please, DO compare our Auckland day tour itinerary, the unique experiences you will have, PRICE, (and see if [what and where] lunch and/or afternoon tea is included on these other tours??).
“we look forward to meeting you”
