Warkworth – just an hour’s drive from New Zealand’s largest city and a world away in terms of character and pace - is also the gateway to the Matakana Coast Wine Country, one of the most desirable places to visit in New Zealand.


The heart of Warkworth is its river. The Mahurangi, once a lifeline for the village, with steamboats and scows plying the coast and providing a much-needed link with Auckland, is today a tranquil and picturesque old dame. She is home to fabled ducks, hosts a restful riverbank walkway and provides a playground for boaties.

Warkworth’s rich heritage is reflected in its buildings and sites of historic interest. Its cafes, specialist shops and character architecture make it a charming village and the commercial hub of the area.

Visit the shops, art and craft galleries, vineyards, restaurants, cafes, bars and beaches. Enjoy a movie at the Matakana picture theatre or walk around the famous Matakana Farmers Market.
For more adventurous people, try horse riding,
canoeing, scuba diving, walking or just relax
on the golf courses.
