“There are several golf courses in the south – try Pukekohe or the new Windross Farm. Play early, then you’ve got the afternoon to enjoy the drive back, or stop somewhere for lunch in Pukekohe on the way home.”
Sir John Kirwin
Put a spring in your step this weekend at the Auckland Botanic Gardens in Manurewa, with a wander through the themed gardens and a series of art installations dotted throughout. Don’t miss the Spring Blossom Valley, bursting with colourful blooms and bulbs.
Have a day or night away at Castaways Resort, set on the cliffs at Karioitahi Beach on the Awhitu Peninsula. Go glamping under the stars, visit the day spa for a luxury beauty treatment, or dine out at the clifftop restaurant – all of them complete with panoramic sea views.
