Welcome to Waiheke, the jewel of the Hauraki Gulf

Kia Ora, and welcome to Auckland and Waiheke Island.

Waiheke Island is the jewel in the crown of the stunning Hauraki Gulf.  Waiheke, in the Maori language, means cascading or ebbing water and from the moment you cross the sparkling waters of the Waitemata harbour, you will start enjoy the world-class wines, freshly pressed olive oils, sample the wonderful flavours of the local cuisine , lose yourself in numerous art galleries, and relax on the pristine beaches. We all know that you will also enjoy the wonderful hospitality on the island and we extend a warm "Kiwi" welcome to all Waiheke Island visitors.
