Matakana & Environs

With an intriguing history and a progressive outlook, the Matakana region has evolved through times of challenge and prosperity. I call myself a long-term part-time local, with my family having had a beach house at Omaha since 1972.

This is a stunning part of New Zealand, just an hour north of Auckland.

If you want to discover this region in a behind-the-scenes way, meeting locals and learning of the history - come and discover it with BEYOND!

We offer two itineraries - a Gentle one and a more Active one.

These current ones are designed with Winter in mind.

As the weather warms up, we'll add in a few more "summery" treats!

If you'd like to visit the Matakana area on your own (rather than in a group setting) with a Personal Travel Companion, we can put together a special itinerary to suit your preferences and accompany you every step of the way.
