Summer lovin’ is all about location, location, location. Lock in your end of year fling or celebrate another year of coupled bliss with these summer date ideas!
1. Painting in the Park!
Our painting in the park events combine all the creativity and life of our regular wine and paint parties with the irresistible summer sun (we also run plenty of indoor events if that’s more your thing!). Learn how to paint while making the most of the warm weather. We’ll supply everything you need, just show and get ready to create!
This is the sort of unique painting class where you’ll not only meet new people, you’ll also get a tan!
2. Catch a Flick Outdoors
Why waste a perfectly warm summer night in an air-conditioned theatre? Head to one of these outdoor cinemas and take in seasonal classics and recent releases in a scenic setting. Pick up a jumbo-sized popcorn to share, or bring your own for a budget-friendly time!
3. Tree Adventures
Climb, crawl, and swing high above the ground at Tree Adventures! This thrilling ropes course offers something to suit every fitness level and appetite for adrenaline. Maybe bring a spare shirt – climbing trees can be sweaty work!
4. Auckland Zoo
We’re lucky to have one of the world’s best zoos right in our own backyard. With a packed calendar of summer events (including live music and special late-night events), there’s always a good reason to heed the call of the wild.
5. Cool Down at the Parnell Baths
The Parnell Baths have been cooling down Aucklanders for over 100 summers and counting. Lounge in the saltwater pool, relax in the spa or behave like a couple of kids in the interactive aquatic playground. If you’re feeling energetic, a harbour walk to Mission Bay for ice cream is the perfect end to a perfect day.
