Activities in Kumeu

Once the site of an active volcano, Auckland Domain is now home to a wealth of exotic plantlife, sculpture and a wide-ranging museum.

Pull on your walking boots and follow a trail that takes in a volcanic crater, a 19th-century prison and a quirky, creative village.

Ascend the tallest man-made structure in New Zealand for stunning views over Auckland. Dine in the rotating restaurant or take a dive from a height of 194 metres.

Not just a landmark structure in the Waitemata Harbour, this box truss bridge also provides a thrilling experience for climbers and bungee-jumpers.

Despite what you might think, there's more to this museum than guns and warplanes (though those are pretty impressive too).

Just eight minutes from Auckland city centre white rhinos and a pride of lions roam. Wander safely and at your leisure amid tigers and elephants at Auckland Zoo.

Take to the black sand and rolling surf of Piha Beach for epic surfing and serene rainforest walks.
