An opportunity to socialise and take a break from the upload of multliple streams of information is the reason why our half day adventures are an important part of the Vista Conference agenda. Plus - we love to show our guests our stunning city and have fun at the same time.


The world-class Titirangi golf course is set in beautiful bushland between the lower slopes of the Waitakere Ranges and the Manukau Harbour and is considered to be one of New Zealand’s top courses. If you're a passionate golfer - this is for you.

Yacht Racing – America's Cup & Whitbread (Lion NZ) Boats

Three teams of delegates will face off against each other in the famous Americas Cup yachts NZL40 & NZL41 and Whitbread Round-the-World series yacht Lion NZ. Yes - Team Lion NZ will benefit from the appropriate handicap at the start line! These magnificent boats provide the ultimate sailing experience and allow everyone to get involved. Get busy on the grinders, take the helm, or simply sit back, relax, and enjoy the ultimate sailing experience on Auckland’s stunning Waitemata Harbour.

Auckland Harbour Cruise

Auckland City is situated at the head of the Hauraki Gulf on the shores of the Waitemata. A luxury motor launch is perfect for all those who want to experience the beauty of Auckland's Waitemata Harbour, but without racing. With a glass of your favourite tipple in your hand, this harbour cruise will take you at a leisurely pace to some of the most breathtakingly beautiful spots in the Waitemata and provide you with stunning views of Auckland City and its surrounds.

Auckland City Revealed

Internationally renowned NZ Tour Company 'Bush and Beach' will host you on this tour of Auckland, which is set on 48 dormant volcanic cones and known as the City of Sails. Set between two harbours, the sparkling Waitemata and the brooding Manukau, this tour takes you on a journey to get to know Auckland better including architectural landmarks, parks and reserves, the 'north shore' via the Harbour Bridge and stunning views of the Hauraki Gulf via the vantage points the city's topography allows.

West Auckland Wine Trail Tour & Tasting

We're leaving behind the bustle of Auckland city bound northwest to taste the wine flavours of Kumeu Wine Country, Auckland's Heritage Wine Region. Sample wines from world-renowned brands Soljans, Coopers Creek and West Brook Wineries. As an added bonus, over a packed lunch marvel at Murawai Beach and the rugged surf-fringed West Auckland Coastline - a magnet for Aucklanders in need of a break and some surf.
