Village Picnic combines all of the best things in life – fine food, fun and adventure! They offer a unique artisan adventure taking in the sights and tastes of the Matakana Coast region.
Head out on a self-drive day trip, leaving Auckland, solving clues and puzzles along the way. On your way to your final picnic destination, you’ll collect a range of artisan goodies from the very best local operators, before pulling out your picnic rug and enjoying the spoils of your labour.
The team at Village Picnic are committed to using only the highest quality products and ingredients that are locally sourced. They also use eco-friendly packaging and do an amazing job of showing off the best of the Matakana Coast.
This is a day trip with a difference!
They’ll sort all of the details, leaving you only to drive, figure out the clues and have an amazing time along the way.
This is perfect if you’re looking for a memorable date, have a special occasion to celebrate (a birthday, hen’s do or anniversary perhaps?) or are just keen to treat yourself.
How Does My Mystery Picnic Experience Work?
- You will receive a text message the night before your ‘Mystery Picnic’ with a clue to your first destination.
- There you will be greeted by Village Picnic and given instructions and a plan for the rest of the day.
- You will be given a ‘base’ picnic to start and will collect additional artisan items along the way.
- Allow 5-6 hours from Auckland City, though you’re welcome to spend longer if you’d like.
- This package is available any day of the week (though you suggest avoiding Saturdays in the summer months due to the Matankana Farmer’s Market traffic)
