If you feel the need to burn off some energy after a lazy few days of wine tasting, head to Wild on Waiheke. You can easily spend a full and action-packed day here with outdoor activities ranging from archery to laser claybird shooting. It’s also child-friendly, with a great playground, trampoline and sandpit, plus a number of free activities such as petanque, giant chess and volleyball.
Things To Know
The on-site microbrewery produces craft beers, ginger beer the way you remember it and a refreshing cider. Over summer, time your visit for a tour of the brewery (Sat-Sun 11.15am and 3pm). Dogs are welcome if on a lead. Topknot Hill wines are available by the glass or bottle and there are cellar door sales. Lunches are generous and feature local produce – the burgers and gourmet pizzas are especially popular and perfect for keeping energy levels high.
The brewed Baroona Original Pale Ale is perfect with pizza, as is the syrah.
