Clevedon is a small rural village 10kms south of the Pohutukawa Coast. It is best known for being the home of the annual New Zealand Polo Open and for its hugely popular Farmers’ Market. Clevedon is a small community with a lot to offer.

Introducing Clevedon and District

Love food and wine? Sip on boutique wines over Sunday lunch at one of the area’s small wineries. Enjoy a group tasting or dine al fresco overlooking the vines. Pick up fresh produce and delicious homemade foods at Clevedon Farmers’ Market or visit the Clevedon Village Market for arts, crafts and jewellery. Both markets are on every Sunday. Join a foodie tour for a gourmet culinary tour of the region. Buffalo mozzarella anyone?

Visit the historic McNicol Homestead Museum for a glimpse into New Zealand in the 1800s and enjoy a picnic in the garden. The main street of the village has cafes, boutique gift shops and great food. The roads in and around Clevedon are popular with road cyclists – so take care when driving!

Over the hill from Clevedon is the village of Hunua, gateway to the bush-clad Hunua Ranges with its many tramping tracks – east Auckland’s answer to the Waitakere Ranges. Its most popular attraction is the Hunua Falls – arguably among New Zealand’s most spectacular. The falls are a great place for a picnic, but swim at your own risk and take note of the warning signs.

Following the coast road east from Clevedon takes you to the remoter seaside settlements of Kawakawa Bay and Orere Pt. These two villages have –  so far – been largely untouched by Auckland’s rapid urban development. Kawakawa Bay boasts the busiest boat ramp in the region due to its proximity to the Hauraki Gulf. Stop for an icecream at the Bay’s only shop!  Follow the winding road over the hill to Orere Pt and its rugged pebble and sand beach. Orere Pt also has one of the region’s best camping grounds.
