@Kumeu Market @Kumeu Market

Departing from Auckland, city of sails you travel through West Auckland and Kumeu, the home of Auckland’s oldest wine regions with temptations to linger in one of the many vineyard cafes and explore the Kumea weekend market scene. From Kumea a quick detour for heritage lovers and fans of the TV series ‘BrokenWood’ to view the TV series ‘Police Station.’ The actual building is heritage listed Helensville Post Office.



You are following the trails of pre-European Maori, timber merchants seeking kauri trees (tall straight ancient dense wood suitable for sailing ship spars) and settlers seeking land for farming.

The now quiet Kaipara Harbour and trails of the Kauri Coast are a fascinating glimpse into patterns of human occupation in Aotearoa New Zealand.
