About Matakana


Matakana is situated in the Rodney district, just one hour’s drive from Auckland’s city centre.

Nearby the communities of Puhoi, Mahurangi, Warkworth, Kawau, Leigh, and Pakiri flourish.

Take a walk along the sandy beaches and enjoy the stunning Pacific Ocean. Lie on the dunes and watch the starry night appear. Marvel at the night sky.

The Matakana Coast Wine Country is truly a paradise, with its glorious beaches, rolling countryside, secluded bays and boutique vineyards.

The district is renowned for its produce and wines, and visitors to the region are treated to organic fruits and vegetables, locally produced wine, handmade chocolates and other artisan delights.

The Matakana Coast is home to a number of nationally and internationally recognised artists. They create a diverse range of fine art and crafts, many of which are available from the artist’s home studio, gallery or workshop.

Matakana - it’s a place where the good things in life are found in abundance.
