This morning travel to Glenbrook. On arrival, board the Glenbrook Vintage Steam Train. Lovingly restored, you’ll enjoy a journey through the beautiful rural Franklin countryside aboard this historic steam train. Travel to Victoria Avenue and Waiuku, before enjoying a stop at the Pukeoware Depot to explore the workshop, view other historic regional locomotives undergoing restoration, and indulge in a delightful morning tea. Later, re-board the train and travel back towards Glenbrook. This afternoon, head towards Viaduct Harbour to board the Ipipiri for your spectacular overnight cruise. Glide past Auckland’s iconic highlights, including the Harbour Bridge, Bean Rock Lighthouse and Devonport, as you glide out across the Waitemata Harbour towards the Hauraki Gulf. Here, you’ll see the beautiful Rangitoto Island, formed around 600 years ago by a volcanic eruption; neighbouring Motutapu, one of the earliest places inhabited by Maori; Motuihe; Browns Island; and Waiheke Island with its golden sandy beaches. Perhaps take to the waters in one of the ship’s kayaks or discover the underwater world whilst snorkelling. This evening, dine on fresh local produce.
