Win a return ferry ride for two to Waiheke

Two days before being announced the most Instagrammed location in New Zealand, a group of bloggers (including myself) had a fine day out on Waiheke Island. It coincidentally happened to be the day Fullers started their new half-hour ferry timetable. As well as more ferry departures, Fullers have a new menu for those who want to enjoy local delicacies on board. The new menu includes Passage Rock wines, Tuatara craft beer and cider, Waiheke fudge and Te Whau Lodge’s toasted muesli.

To enter, simply complete the entry form at the bottom of this post including a skill question.

(Answer can be found here).

Only a 35 minute ferry ride away from downtown Auckland, Waiheke offers a warm microclimate, vineyards, fine food, white sand beaches, art galleries and outdoor activities for the adventurous. A popular destination for weddings and weekends, it’s really no surprise that locals and overseas visitors flock to Waiheke year round.

Maddy from Madicattt and Ananda Tours put together a personalised tour for our group. Being a Saturday, we started at Ostend Markets, then to Te Whau Vineyard and restaurant for tasting of their award winning Bordeaux-style blend, Rangihoua Estate for olive oil tastings, a wine and food pairing at Peacock Sky, a picnic lunch at Onetangi Beach by local Italian bakery Franco’s, a browse through Oneroa Village finished off with a artisan gelato at Island Gelato. It was great to get off the beaten track a little and we saw some glorious views.

We saw a good selection of places on Waiheke but there’s so much more on offer, especially for those who love food and wine. Julie Biuso, one of Auckland’s foodie sweethearts has recently moved to Waiheke, offering cooking classes at Rangihoua Estate. Oyster Inn, Mudbrick, Casita Miro and Cable Bay are highly regarded places on my bucket list.
