Auckland is not usually thought of as a location of choice for motor caravanners. After all, the motor-caravanning lifestyle is mostly about escaping from the rush and bussle of city life. However, Auckland is not just the metropolitan area - it extends from the country town of Wellsford in the north, to below Pukekohe in the south. And there is nowhere more away from the bussle of city life than Great Barrier Island!
All around Auckland you can find magic places to explore, where city life may as well be a million miles away! Isolated beaches, small country towns with farmers markets, forests to explore, great fishing, eating and drinking.
If you live in Auckland, these places make for a great weekend away. If you live further away, Auckland is well worth exploring.
If you live in another country and are planning to explore New Zealand in a motorhome, then make Auckland your first destination. You can rent a motorhome here and collect it from close to the International airport. Then spend a few days exploring Auckland while you get settled in your new 'home'.
This summer we plan to explore as many of these locations as we can, and share them with you on this website. Do some exploring using this website - you might be pleasantly surprised!
