Waiheke Island Architecture Tour

Our post-in:situ architecture tour is always popular and this outing to Waiheke Island promises to showcase the very best in residential architecture. We will visit five houses, each designed to make the most of Motu Wai Heke’s (island of trickling waters) coastal typography, climate and spectacular views.

On Thursday 22 February the boat departs central Auckland at 8.30am, and morning tea will be served aboard. Once on the island, you will be transported by bus to the respective projects, where 30 minutes has been allocated to make the most of each locale. After touring the five dwellings, we will enjoy a long lunch at The Heke, a restaurant, craft beer brewery and whiskey distillery at Onetangi. We’ll leave Waiheke for the city at 4.30pm and be back on shore by 6pm.

Sold out. If you wish to be placed on a cancellation list, please email with your name and the number of tickets you require.
