Queens Birthday Weekend
Next Monday (3rd June) New Zealand will be celebrating the Queen’s Birthday. There will be plenty of things taking place in downtown Auckland with the “Best of British” festival being held on Queen’s Wharf. This is a celebration of everything British, with classic car and dancing displays, a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and plenty of other free activities.
This event is free to the public and open each day of Queen’s birthday weekend (10AM-5PM 1-3 June).
Visit the Queen’s Wharf page on Facebook for more information.
The weather might be getting a bit cooler but there are still plenty of beautiful days (like today!) to make the most of New Zealand’s beautiful natural landscape.
The Hunua Ranges are located in the south eastern side of the Auckland Region (around 1 hour drive from Auckland CBD). They cover about 400 square kms of land and the park contains more than 450 species of native plants. There are hiking tracks through dense forest, views to the city, and of course the Hunua falls and numerous streams and falls. There are several camping areas (bookings are required- contact the Auckland Regional Council). The Hunua Ranges are a great place to go Mountain biking – there are several exciting trails.
Why not make a day trip there 🙂
