We signed up for a full day wine tour. Our first stop was a visit to Kumeu River. Their white wine was very good, and so we decided to get one bottle for ourselves in the evening. 🙂
After that we visited Muriwai black sand surf beach and see the gannet colony. We were in luck, it was the nesting season for the birds.
We saw the Muriwai black sand beach. As New Zealand is an island with so many volcanoes, it is not uncommon to see black sand beaches.
We wanted to visit the Puhoi Cheese factory, but we were late and thus not in time.
Of course not forgetting the 850 year old Kauri tree.
Then we ended off with the little quaint Matakan village. 🙂
