Matakana Country Park
Home to the coming BLOOM Family Festival in 2012, the Matakana Country Park is a great day trip for kids only 45 mins from the CBD.

With plenty on offer, from the kids play area to the petting zoo, the Matakana Country Park is an ideal destination if you want to get out of Auckland for the day.

With an on-site cafe and restaurant, all your food needs are covered as well as a art gallery and a few other smaller shops.
